Facts About Truck Accidents

  • Truck accidents often result in severe consequences due to the size and weight of commercial vehicles, leading to catastrophic injuries and fatalities.
  • Truck accidents can occur due to various factors such as driver fatigue, improper maintenance, speeding, distracted driving, and adverse weather conditions.
  • Due to their size and blind spots, trucks pose a higher risk to other road users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and smaller vehicles.
  • Truck accident cases are often more complex than typical car accidents due to multiple potentially liable parties, including the truck driver, trucking company, vehicle manufacturer, and cargo loaders.
  • Trucking operations are subject to strict federal and state regulations to ensure safety on the roads, including hours-of-service rules, vehicle maintenance standards, and driver licensing requirements.
