Common Causes of Catastrophic Truck Accidents

More than 8 million registered trucks are involved in serious and even deadly accidents each year in the United States. Other motorists on the road stand little to no chance when involved in an accident involving a truck that is significantly bigger in size and weight. As such, even the lightest impact with a truck may lead to a devastating injury or death.

However, the susceptibility of the trucking industry to unsafe practices makes it a culprit for the following common causes of truck accidents:(NHTSA) reports that every 16 minutes an innocent party is seriously injured or dies in an accident involving a truck or commercial vehicle. Whether a truck accident is the result of a negligent action or a reckless disregard for human life, the resulting injuries often significantly alter the lives of the victim and the lives of their loved ones.

–  Traveling at a reckless or unsafe speed
–  Road rage or aggressive driving
–  Not seeing other drivers or losing them in the truck’s “blind spots”
–  Driving while fatigued in order to meet unreasonable deadlines
–  Driving under the influence of over-the-counter medications that may cause drowsiness
