Factors Leading to Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents can occur under a variety of circumstances. Nearly one third of big rig crashes involve rear-end collisions. The most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Aggressive driving including speeding and tailgating
- Distracted or inattentive driving including talking on cell phones
- Driver fatigue caused by driving excessive hours or “highway hypnosis”
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Improper cargo loading including unsecured or overloaded cargo
- Improper truck maintenance
- Failure to abide by speed limits in work zones
- Failing to check blind spots while turning or changing lanes
- Roll over, jackknifing or tipping over of trucks
- Truck collisions with objects like curbs (also called “tripping”)
- Violations of federal truck standards and regulations
Truck Accident Injuries
Given the large size, imposing weight and speed of trucks and tractor-trailers, the impact of colliding with these vehicles often cause extremely severe injuries. Truck accident injuries often include broken bones and fractures, traumatic brain injuries, concussions, neck injuries, muscles sprains and strains, ligament injuries, joint (shoulder, knee) tears, burns, scars, disfigurement, loss of vision, paralysis, loss of limbs, back injuries and even death. Emotional wounds can be even more difficult to recover from and include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.
Truck Accident Insurance Injuries
There are often many parties who bear responsibility for a truck accident. In addition to the truck drivers, potentially responsible parties may include truck owners, leasing companies, maintenance companies, government entities responsible for road maintenance, shipping companies and cargo companies. Each of these parties will have their own insurance.
