What Causes Truck Crashes?
After experiencing the shock of a trucking accident, you are probably wondering what could have caused it. A variety of factors can contribute to trucking accidents. In many cases, multiple factors contribute to a single incident. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Lack of driver training
- Pressure from the trucking company to make a deadline
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Improper cargo loading
Determining the exact cause of an accident can be complicated. A truly thorough investigation requires someone who has considerable experience handling commercial truck accident cases.
