What caused the accident?
Because trucks are large vehicles, trucking accidents can be deadly. Due to the weight and size of the vehicle, it’s difficult to break at high-speeds. Truck drivers who lose control may struggle to gain it back. Some ways a truck can get into an accident include:
- Speeding – Many times truckers speed to meet tight deadlines at work. About 1 out of 5 trucking accidents are due to high speeds.
- Fatigued truckers – Truck drivers don’t get enough sleep. Some of them have a 16-hour shift. Fatigue can impair the driver’s ability to manage unpredictable situations on the road.
- Uneven loads – The loaded equipment needs to be distributed evenly throughout the truck otherwise a tire may blow causing the vehicle to rollover.
- DUI – Truckers sometimes take drugs to stay awake. This may cause them to respond the wrong way when getting into an accident.
- Careless driving – Careless behavior while driving such as not keeping the right distance from other cars, changing lanes periodically, and stopping unexpectedly, will cause a lot of damage.
