Causes Of Truck Accidents According To Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Big rigs, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers are all terms that people use to describe the big trucks that can cause tremendous damage in a crash. These trucks are often considered commercial vehicles that need to abide by federal regulations. The first step toward recovering compensation for injured people is to reconstruct the crash and document for a potential judge and jury how it happened. Common explanations include:

  • Distracted, fatigued or impaired driving
  • Poor maintenance or equipment failure (such as brakes)
  • Cargo shifts or imbalance
  • Driver errors such as speeding or aggressive driving
  • Bad weather, poorly maintained roads or unfamiliar roads
  • Federal, state or company-specific regulation violations, such as failure to adhere to the correct maximum hours of service
  • Failure to conduct required pretrip inspection covering tries, lights, brakes, engine functions, fuel tank, fluids, windshield, emergency kit, mirrors, coupling system, seatbelts and more

In collisions between semis and passenger cars, the drivers of the semis often emerge untouched, whereas the occupants of the passenger cars often die or suffer from catastrophic injuries. A family will need significant financial support in either case. Through a personal injury claim or lawsuit
