Causes Of Truck Accidents

Through thorough investigation, we can uncover factors that contributed to a semi crash, including:

  • Truck driver negligence: Fatigue is a significant factor in many truck accidents. Drivers may be distracted or they may be too rushed. With a large semi truck, one small mistake can cause serious or fatal injuries to the occupants of a smaller vehicle.
  • Lack of truck maintenance: Vehicles must be regularly inspected and maintained to prevent tire blowouts, brake failure, light problems and other mechanical issues that can cause accidents.
  • Auto design defects: Defectively designed parts of trucks and cars can contribute to accidents. Even if they are not a direct cause of a semi-truck crash, they can make injuries more severe.

In part because of the great risk trucks pose to other drivers in accidents, the trucking industry is governed by strict state and federal regulations. As part of our thorough investigation, we examine whether trucking companies and drivers followed these regulations.
