Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be particularly devastating due to the vehicles’ sheer size and weight. Determining the cause of the crash is crucial in order to establish liability. While every accident has its own unique set of circumstances, certain causes tend to recur more frequently:

  • Driver Fatigue: Truck drivers often push beyond their limits, despite regulations regarding rest periods, leading to fatigue-related mistakes.
  • Distracted Driving: Mobile phones, navigation systems, or simple daydreaming can divert a driver’s attention from the road.
  • Improper Loading: Overloaded or improperly loaded cargo can cause balance issues, making the truck prone to tipping.
  • Maintenance Issues: Neglected maintenance can lead to brake failures, tire blowouts, or other mechanical issues.
  • Speeding: To meet tight delivery deadlines, drivers sometimes exceed speed limits, compromising their ability to react quickly.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Drugs or alcohol can severely impair a driver’s judgment and reflexes.
