Common Causes Of Semi And Commercial Truck Accidents

Some common causes of semi and commercial truck accidents include:

  • Driver Error – Operator errors may result from carelessness, fatigue, or a lack of knowledge about the laws. Driving mistakes may include poor lane changes, disregarding traffic signals, and failing to account for the weight of the commercial truck while driving.
  • Failed Brakes – The health of the vehicle’s brakes are extremely important in a commercial truck. Failed brakes may cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle, causing a collision.
  • Speed – Driving at a high rate of speed is especially dangerous for a commercial vehicle. Operating at speeds that are too fast makes it difficult for the driver to control their truck.
  • Failed Tires – Truck maintenance is critical to safe driving, including regular inspection and proper inflation of tires. Failed tires may result in an accident.
  • Drunk Driving – Even though a commercial driver should never take to the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs, drunk driving is a common cause of semi and commercial truck accidents.
