Unimaginable truck accidents occur daily in the United States, wreaking havoc on the lives of those involved and their families. These devastating incidents claim the lives of thousands of individuals each year across the nation. In Arizona, we see countless people lose their lives as a result of these accidents every year.
While truck accidents can stem from various causes, certain factors tend to be more common than others. Driver fatigue is a significant contributor to many truck accidents here in the state of Arizona. When drivers are forced to spend long hours out on the road, they are more likely to fall asleep while behind the wheel. As a result, they can crash into other vehicles and cause severe harm.
Additionally, equipment failure plays a role in countless vehicle accidents that we see here in our state. When brakes fail, accelerators jam, or other parts fail to operate as expected; it can lead to serious truck accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people.
Another common cause of truck crashes in Arizona is speeding. When truck drivers exceed the speed limit, their ability to respond to obstacles or other vehicles dramatically decreases, which can cause serious accidents to occur.
