Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can result from multiple factors, with some wrecks involving a combination of contributing elements. In general, some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Motorist negligence, such as driver distraction or driver impairment – This can include the negligent, careless or reckless actions of truckers and/or any other driver on the road.
  • Defective vehicle equipment, which can impair motorists’ abilities to safely handle trucks or other vehicles
  • Poor roadway conditions, such as debris in the roads, a lack of traffic signs or signals or even a lack of roadway dividers or guardrails
  • Other forms of negligence, like the negligence of trucking companies (when their violations or illegal actions contribute to truck wrecks) or roadway construction crews (when they fail to properly set up highway work sites and these oversights contribute to truck crashes).


What to Do after a Truck Accident

Following a truck accident, knowing what steps to take can be pivotal to protecting yourself and positioning a future truck accident claim/case for success.
