Common Causes of Truck Accidents
While semi drivers are trained to be professional, there are numerous ways truck accidents can happen. Truck drivers are under pressure to deliver their goods and, because of this, sometimes drive while sleep-deprived, lowering their reaction time and awareness. Mechanical failure on the truck itself can also lead to a crash, as can driving in adverse weather conditions.
Some common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted Drivers
- Tired Drivers
- Driving Under the Influence
- Poor Training
- Unsecured Loads
- Poor Truck Maintenance
- Poor Road Conditions
For many truck drivers, the unfortunate reality is that it’s not if an accident happens, but when. In light of this, if you are injured in a truck accident, it important that you protect your rights to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
