Truck accidents are a common occurrence in modern society. The streets and highways are filled with both large and small automobiles, cars, and trucks. Truck and automobile collisions are rated a very high percentile as a leading cause of fatalities in the United States.

Every state has a different set of laws in accordance to compensation due to accidents and collisions involving trucks. You can contact us for more information, or if you have experienced or involved in a truck accident or collision.

Common causes of Truck Accidents:

  • DUI - Driving a truck under the influence of alcohol.
  • Driver Fatigue - Cross-country truck driving is very weary and tiresome. A driver may experience fatigue and unwittingly cause a truck accident.
  • Truck Overturns - Major causes of accidents are driving too close to ditches or on soft shoulders, driving on slopes with an uneven load, and raising the truck bed on uneven ground.
  • Crushed by the Bed - Failure to block a raised bed while working on the hoist can result in the bed coming down on a person.
  • Backing - About 25 percent of accidents involving trucks are a result of backing over a person or into an object.
  • Vehicle Collisions - Accidents resulting from poor brakes, nonworking signals, or driver fatigue are common during the harvest season.
  • Transporting Equipment or Other Materials on Trailers - Failure to load and secure equipment or other materials properly can cause the load to either fall off trailers or cause the towing vehicle to lose control.
  • Overloaded Trucks or Trailers - Overloading trucks or trailers puts additional strain on the vehicle, particularly the brakes and tires. Towing a trailer with a weight heavier than the towing vehicle will lead to loss of control, especially down hills.
  • Loads That Shift Weight - Livestock will shift weight when turning corners or when making sudden swerves. Liquids in tanks will slosh back and forth if no baffles are installed in the tank. Maintaining the control of a truck is difficult when weight slips especially on poor road conditions.
