A trucking accident can lead to serious and disabling injuries that require expensive and lifelong medical treatments. They can frequently involve multiple vehicles and victims. Commercial trucks tend to cause more destructive damage because of their large size. If an accident involves a large truck and a passenger vehicle, those in passenger vehicles tend to experience the most serious injuries.
Truck accidents can be legally complicated because of industry regulations and the number of parties who are responsible for trucks, including truck drivers, owners, brokers, and insurance companies. Some common causes of trucking accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to maintain
- Texting drivers
- Tired drivers
- Tire blowout
- Unsecure cargo
- Unsafe lane changes
