Determining What Caused Your Truck Accident
It is not always very apparent or obvious what caused a vehicle collision. While some accidents may be more straightforward, others are more complex. Police officers responding to the scene may give their opinion, but it takes thorough investigation and detailed review of evidence to truly determine who was at fault and ultimately what caused the accident. Some of the following are very common causes of truck crashes:
- Sleepy or drowsy driving
- Texting or talking on the phone while driving
- Use of alcohol, drugs, or other substances
- Distracted driving
- Violation of driving hour limits
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Truck defects or damages
- Lack of training or violation of protocol
Since trucks are so large and heavy, even the smallest driver error or mistake could lead to a deadly crash. Truck drivers must pay even more attention to the road and drive more cautiously due to this. Sadly, this type of safety and precaution doesn’t always happen. Many drivers are on a tight schedule and either speed or push through too long of days on the road. This can lead to tragic accidents and injuries.
