Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Understanding the common causes of trucking accidents is crucial for building a solid case. Various factors contribute to these incidents, often involving a combination of human error, mechanical failures, and external conditions. 

Some of the prevalent causes include:

  • Driver Fatigue: Long hours on the road can lead to driver fatigue, impairing reaction times and decision-making.
  • Speeding: Truck drivers under pressure to meet tight deadlines may exceed speed limits, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Distracted Driving: Distractions such as mobile phones, in-cab technology, or other factors can divert a driver's attention from the road.
  • Poor Weather Conditions: Adverse weather, such as rain or fog, can make driving hazardous, especially for large trucks with heavy loads.
  • Improper Loading: Incorrectly loaded or unbalanced cargo can cause trucks to become unstable, leading to accidents.
  • Mechanical Failures: Equipment malfunctions, such as brake failures or tire blowouts, can result in loss of control and accidents.

Identifying the specific cause of a trucking accident is crucial for building a compelling case and establishing liability.
