What Causes Truck Accidents?

Negligence is usually at the heart of most accidents. However, unlike most other accidents, more than one party is often liable for a victim’s injuries in a truck accident case. Due to the number of parties involved in the trucking industry, anyone from the company that manufactured the truck’s parts to the company that was responsible for maintaining the truck or loading its cargo could be held liable. Therefore, these lawsuits are more complex than the average car accident.

Below are some of the most common causes of truck accidents:

  • Truck driver fatigue: Truck drivers are required to take a certain number of breaks. If they fail to do so, they might be too drowsy to drive. If the trucking company pressured the driver to violate the regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the driver and the trucking company could be held liable for the accident.
  • Drugs and alcohol: Substance abuse is a prevalent problem among truck drivers, which can increase the likelihood of a dangerous and fatal accident.
  • Inadequate or improper truck maintenance: Before hitting the road, trucks must be properly inspected and maintained. Given the long distances most trucks are expected to drive, this is a crucial step in ensuring the safety of the driver and others on the road.
  • Defective equipment: In some cases, defective equipment in a truck, such as the tires or brakes, can result in an accident. In such cases, the manufacturer of the equipment can be held liable.
  • Speeding: Truck drivers are under a lot of pressure to meet certain deadlines, some of which are unrealistic. To reach their destination within the given timeframe, some truck drivers will speed and drive recklessly, which can easily lead to an accident.
