Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents involve various factors that can endanger other motorists. Here are some common causes:

  • Driver fatigue: Long hours without adequate breaks can decrease truck drivers’ alertness.
  • Distracted driving: Truckers using mobile phones, GPS navigation, adjusting controls, eating, or other actions taking the driver’s attention off the road.
  • Speeding: Exceeding speed limits or driving too fast for conditions.
  • Impaired driving: Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including stimulants).
  • Inadequate training: Insufficient training on vehicle operation and safety procedures.
  • Poor vehicle maintenance: Failing to maintain brakes, tires, and other critical vehicle components.
  • Improper loading: Overloading or uneven loading of cargo can affect vehicle stability.

Regardless of the cause, you deserve just compensation. Trust the Joshua E. Palmer Law Firm to analyze the specific causes of the truck accident and protect your rights.

  • Economic loss: Victims frequently incur significant medical expenses and may lose income due to prolonged recovery periods or permanent disability.
