Causes of Auto & Truck Accidents

Driver negligence is a very common cause of auto and truck accidents and can include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Running a red light
  • Running a stop sign
  • Failure to signal
  • Unsafe passing
  • Following too closely

Other common causes of auto and truck accidents include:

  • Defective vehicle
  • Defective roadway

Common Causes of Commercial Truck Accidents

All of the common causes of auto accidents can also cause commercial truck accidents, but in truck accident cases we have to dig deeper. The trucking industry is heavily regulated, and violations of state or federal trucking regulations can point us to the responsible party in your truck accident. Truck drivers and trucking companies are required to keep extensive records to prove that they are incompliance with the law, and we often find the evidence we need buried deep in the paperwork.

It takes an experienced truck accident attorney, with an in-depth understanding of trucking law and the ability to interpret the records and find the discrepancies that can reveal hidden violations, to win these complex cases.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Unrealistic schedules imposed on truck drivers
  • Driver fatigue
  • Intoxication
  • Improperly loaded truck
  • Overweight truck
  • Inadequate truck maintenance
  • Inexperienced truck driver
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Truck driver unfamiliar with the area
  • Defective truck or equipment
  • Missing or inaccurate height or weight limit signs
  • Other negligent driver, who may or may not be involved in the crash itself
