Truck Accidents

Every year, nearly 500,000 large vehicle (known as tractor-trailers or “semis”) are involved in trucking accidents in the United States. Approximately 5,000 of these truck collisions result in fatalities, and more than 100,000 result in serious personal injury. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities is caused by an accident involving a large truck. Many technical factors can cause a truck accident, and it is for this reason that these specific lawsuits require personal injury lawyers who have a lot of experience in tractor-trailer collisions. The following are some of the more common causes for a trucking accident:

Driver fatigue

Improper driver training and experience

Use of drugs and alcohol by the truck driver

Unsafe equipment

Lack of following the federal trucking laws and regulations

Speed and improperly adjusted brakes

Cell phone usage and texting
