In some instances, uncontrollable factors such as adverse weather conditions will give rise to a truck accident. But more often than not, these accidents are caused by negligence. Sadly, many of these accidents could be avoided if truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers took greater care.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Inadequately trained truck drivers
- Overloaded trucks
- Improperly secured cargo
- Unbalanced truck loads
- Truck driver fatigue
- Reckless driving
- Drug and alcohol use by the truck driver
- Failure to adequately screen truck driver candidates prior to hiring them
- Distracted driving
