Truck accidents can occur due to a variety of common causes. Driver fatigue, often stemming from long hours on the road and demanding schedules, is a leading factor. Other frequent causes include distracted driving, such as texting or using electronic devices, impaired driving due to alcohol or drug use, speeding, inadequate training, improper vehicle maintenance, and aggressive driving behaviors. These factors can contribute to the increased risk of truck accidents and highlight the importance of addressing them through enhanced safety measures and stricter regulations.
Truck accidents have the potential to cause devastating consequences, including loss of life. The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks amplify the impact of collisions, leading to severe injuries and fatalities. Unfortunately, people who are utilizing small passenger vehicles during accidents with semi-trucks are likely to suffer severe injuries.
