Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Accidents involving tractor-trailers are an unfortunate reality of modern life. Trucks are an essential part of our economy, hauling good and other materials millions of miles from coast to coast. When they are involved in accidents, the injuries that they cause can often be catastrophic. Anyone who has been involved in a trucking accident should contact an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible. The attorneys of Shane Smith Law are skilled trucking accident attorneys who know how to get out clients the compensation to which they are entitled.

Truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. There are strict federal and state regulations in place that exist to minimize the risk of accidents occurring, but the reality is that accidents will continue to occur even under optimal conditions. If it can be shown that a truck driver or trucking company was not in compliance with applicable regulations, it may be sufficient to establish liability in a personal injury lawsuit. In order to determine who was at fault in a trucking accident, it is essential to first determine what caused the accident to occur. Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver negligence
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Poor weather conditions
