What Causes Truck Accidents?

Trucking accidents are more complex than your standard automobile accident. Trucking accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, which further adds to their complexity. Many of these conditions are addressed in laws and regulations created by the federal government. In fact, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) exists to maintain the safety of vehicles sharing the road with trucks.

Conditions that cause truck accidents include:

  • Poor weather conditions
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver inexperience or lack of proper training
  • Incorrectly loaded cargo
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Speeding
  • Unfamiliarity with an area
  • Illegal and legal drug use
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Vehicle blind spots
  • And more

When one of these situations or behaviors causes your accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

Who Is Liable for My Truck Accident?

Further complicating trucking accidents is the issue of liability. Unlike a “regular” automobile accident, numerous parties may be liable in a trucking accident. This is due to the commercial nature of the trucking industry. Parties that may be held liable in semi-truck accidents include:overturned 18 wheeler
