Some of the most common causes of truck accidents

Commercial trucks are a common sight on the roads of Illinois and Colorado, and for a good reason – they play an important role in our economy. However, when these big rigs are typically involved in accidents, the results can be catastrophic. These accidents can be caused by many factors, including the following;

Improper loading

Improper loading involves putting too much weight on the truck. This can make it difficult to control, and can lead to brakes failing or the tires exploding. Truckers and trucking companies often overload their vehicles to save time and money, but it’s not worth the risk.

Poor maintenance

If a truck isn’t properly maintained, it can break down on the road and cause an accident. This is often the result of negligence on the part of the trucker or company and can be prevented with regular maintenance checks.

Distracted driving

Distracted driving is a problem for all motorists, but it’s especially dangerous for truckers. These drivers have to pay attention to the road at all times, and any distraction can be deadly. For instance, a trucker who is text messaging while driving is not paying attention to the road and is more likely to cause an accident.

Fatigued driving

Truckers often work long hours, and they usually get exhausted behind the wheel. This increases the risk of them falling asleep at the wheel or making mistakes while driving, potentially causing truck accidents.

Weather conditions

Bad weather can make driving conditions very treacherous, and this is especially true for trucks. These vehicles have a hard time stopping in the rain or snow, and they’re also more likely to lose control on slippery roads.

If you’ve been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, it’s important to gather evidence and understand what to do next. These accidents can be complex, and you’ll need to do everything right to get the compensation you deserve.
