Our thoughts go out to those who have been harmed as a result of this accident. We hope for their timely recovery.
Truck accidents occur far too often and result in serious injuries for those involved. We often see these accidents occur as a result of negligence. One common cause of truck accidents is fatigue. Truck drivers often work long hours without adequate rest breaks, leading to exhaustion on the road.
Another factor that contributes to truck collisions is distracted driving. This includes texting or using a cell phone while driving, eating or drinking behind the wheel, and even chatting with other passengers in the cab.
Speeding is also a significant contributor to truck accidents. When trucks travel above the speed limit or too fast for current weather and traffic conditions, they may lose control and collide with other vehicles.
In addition to these common causes of truck accidents, we see many accidents take place as a result of inadequate training, poor maintenance practices, and improper loading can all lead to serious accidents involving commercial trucks.
If you have been injured as a result of the truck accident, you may be able to take legal action. Seeking guidance from a commercial vehicle accident lawyer at your earliest convenience is critical.
