Common Truck Accidents

Truck accidents happen for a variety of reasons. Just like any other vehicle on the road, trucks are subject to the traffic laws. When a truck driver ignores these regulations, you and your family are put at risk. Keep an eye out for these negligent driving behaviors that can cause a truck accident.

    • Driver error: There are a number of reasons that a truck driver would commit an error when on the road. Just like a typical vehicle driver, they can become distracted with their daily lives, which can be a driving hazard. Other times, truck drivers are fatigued and sleep deprived. They may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol or even disobey highway laws by speeding. When you see a truck driver who is driving erratically or with errors, steer clear of their path and wait for them to pass. Defensive driving could save your life and your family’s lives, too.

 

  • Equipment problems: Truck drivers must make sure that their trucks are properly maintained at all times. When they don’t take the necessary precautions to ensure their trucks are safe, they put you and your family at risk. Tire blowouts, unsecured loads, faulty brakes, transmission failure and deflective lighting can all play a part in truck accidents and threaten your safety on the road. Beware of trucks that look poorly maintained and leave plenty of distance between them and your vehicle.

 

The weather, road conditions and a truck’s mechanical performance can also play a part in a truck accident and cause injury when driving. Speak to your attorney at KM about your truck accident to determine negligence in your case. They can prove who is at fault in an accident and get you a settlement award that is fair.
