Common Causes Of Truck Accidents And Who Is Liable
Trucks are commercial vehicles being driven by professional drivers. Because of this, we should expect truck accidents to be rare and attributable primarily to drivers of other vehicles. Unfortunately, neither is true. Truck accidents in the United States kills thousands of people each year and injure many more. When accidents occur, truck drivers and trucking companies are often to blame. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Insufficient driver training and monitoring
- Truck driver fatigue and drowsy driving
- Violating hours of service regulations (leading to fatigue)
- Improperly secured cargo and uneven weight distribution
- Alcohol and drug impairment
- Failure to maintain and repair critical truck components like worn-out brakes
No matter what the cause, the end results can be disastrous. Make sure you have a competent attorney handling your case. If you’re unable to travel, we’ll come to your home or visit you in the hospital for your free consultation.
