How Semi Truck Crashes Happen
Collisions involving semi trucks often come down to negligence on the part of the truck driver, their employer, the truck mechanic or even the vehicle parts manufacturer. A detailed investigation can uncover the causes and pinpoint which parties are accountable.
Common contributing factors include:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Driving too many hours (logbook violations)
- Unbalanced loads
- Improper maintenance
- Defective brakes, tires or other equipment
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Truck driver distraction or inattention
