Every day, truck accidents occur in the United States, many of which have a significant impact on the lives of those involved. Regrettably, these accidents claim the lives of thousands of people each year across our nation. Here in Louisiana, we see a significant number of fatal accidents take place as a result of negligence.
Truck accidents can stem from various factors, although some causes are more common than others. One significant contributing factor that we see in many truck accidents is driver fatigue. Truck drivers often endure long hours on the road, and inadequate rest or breaks can lead to drowsiness and impaired reaction times.
Speeding is another common cause of truck accidents. When trucks exceed the speed limit, their ability to react to obstacles or other vehicles diminishes, resulting in collisions that cause severe injuries or fatalities.
Additionally, equipment failure can also play a role in many truck accidents. Issues with brakes, tires, or other critical components can create very dangerous situations on the highway.
