Trucks pose an inevitable hazard on public roads due to their large size and weight. A semi-truck or big rig can easily weigh 80,000 pounds, translating to 30 times the size of the average passenger vehicle. While trucks are involved in fewer accidents per 100 million road miles than conventional vehicles, the accidents they do cause are more likely to be fatal accidents.

What Causes Most Truck Accidents?
The trucking industry is massive and is made up of numerous moving parts. Trucking companies must coordinate together to ensure deliveries are made on time while also following strict federal and state trucking regulations. Additionally, truckers are often under pressure from their employers to drive for long hours in order to make deadlines.
With these and other factors combined, it is easy to see how trucking accident claims can quickly become complex—not only will an investigation be needed to determine the cause of the accident, but also a number of parties may potentially be liable for your injuries as well. Which party that is, whether it was the trucker driver, the manufacturer, or a combination of people, may take time to determine. Fortunately, our team is adept at handling truck accident claims, as we have been handling them for nearly a decade. We will look at driver logbooks and other data, interview witnesses and experts, and conduct other investigations to determine who is at fault so we can seek the full compensation you deserve.
Crashes with large trucks are often caused by factors such as:
- Dangerous driving for road/weather conditions
- Veering off the edge of the road
- Drifting lanes
- Tire blowouts
- Moving cargo/cargo coming loose and falling off
- Driver exhaustion/falling asleep behind the wheel
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Insufficient driver training
- Defective truck parts
- Poor truck maintenance
As you can see, in addition to the truck driver, the loading company, the trucker’s employer, the truck’s manufacturer, and others may be potentially at fault for a truck accident.
