Common Causes of Truck Accidents
In addition to the normal laws of the road, trucking companies and tractor trailer drivers are subject to strict rules and regulations. Any failure to properly adhere to these rules could put both the trucker and other drivers in danger.
Tractor trailer accidents are often caused by:
- Fatigued drivers who operate their vehicles longer than the legal daily limit
- Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
- Unqualified truckers or truckers who lack the proper training
- Aggressive driving
- Drinking or drugged driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Defective vehicle or mechanical errors, such as faulty breaks
Failing to follow protocol by driving too many hours in a day or loading cargo improperly is a serious hazard, and the responsible party must be held accountable for its negligence or mistake.
