Fatal truck accidents are the cause of hundreds of deaths in the United States every month. Unfortunately, these incidents take the lives of thousands of people annually. In many cases, crashes are entirely preventable, yet we can continue to see innocent people lose their lives as a result of them.
Fatal truck accidents are often a result of negligent actions. Unfortunately, there are several parties who can act negligently and contribute to one accident occurring. In many cases, the driver of the truck can engage in negligent actions that lead to the accident occurring. This could be speeding to make it to their destination, driving while fatigued, or engaging in another negligent act. In other cases, truck companies may negligently maintain their vehicles and fail to ensure their safety. Other common causes of fatal truck accidents include improperly loaded cargo, vehicle, part defects, and even defective roads.
