Causes Of Truck Accidents

The unique characteristics of commercial trucks lead to catastrophic traffic crashes. Trucks are less maneuverable, require greater distance to stop and produce blind spots for the truck driver. Commercial truck drivers are also under constant pressure to keep trucks moving, and stopped trucks lose money for the trucking company. The pressure to keep trucks on the road often leads to exhausted drivers and worn out equipment. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Overloaded trucks
  • Oversized trucks
  • Driving in unsafe weather conditions
  • Improper turns
  • Blind spots
