Common Causes of Truck Collisions

Since trucks are so much larger and heavier than most other vehicles on the road, they pose a significant hazard when they collide with cars and motorcycles. Additionally, many trucks carry potentially dangerous cargo, such as chemicals and other hazardous materials. Despite numerous entities and organizations that exist to regulate the trucking industry, trucking accidents are not a rare occurrence. Trucking companies and drivers often fail to adhere to these regulations, causing standards to drop and other drivers on the road to get hurt.

There are countless causes of truck accidents. Some of the most common causes that can be attributed to negligence include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver error
  • Traffic violations
  • Cell phone use
  • Distracted driving
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Inadequate training
  • Defective trucks/parts
  • Unrealistic quotas and schedules
  • Improper truck maintenance

In many instances, more than one party may be at fault for an accident. For example, unrealistic schedules imposed by a truck company can cause a truck driver to continue driving even while very tired. It can also cause a driver to turn to illegal stimulants in order to meet his or her quota. If this is the case, and an accident occurs, both the truck company and the driver may be held liable for the resulting injuries and other damages.

Handling Your Complex Case

Cases involving truck accidents are often extremely complex to navigate, especially after you or a loved one is severely injured. The trucking company involved in the accident will likely be conducting an investigation and interviewing witnesses, which is why you should have a Clarksburg truck accident lawyer on your side doing the same. At Goddard & Wagoner, PLLC, we are dedicated to helping you secure just compensation to help you pay for medical treatment, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
