Fatal truck accidents in the United States take the lives of thousands of people annually. Unfortunately, we see many accidents take place as a result of driver actions. Factors such as distracted driving, fatigue, speeding, and impaired driving significantly increase the risk of collisions involving large commercial trucks. The demanding schedules and long hours often associated with the trucking industry can increase these risks.
Another contributing factor is mechanical failures. Issues with brakes, tires, steering systems, and other critical components can lead to catastrophic accidents. Regular vehicle maintenance and rigorous safety inspections are vital in preventing these mechanical failures.
Improper cargo loading and securing practices pose a significant risk as well. When cargo is not properly loaded or secured, it can shift during transit, destabilizing the truck and potentially causing accidents. Compliance with industry standards and regulations is crucial to mitigate these risks.
