Common Causes of Semi-Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles require a much greater stopping distance than cars. Due to their size, these larger vehicles can require more than double the distance to stop than a normal passenger car. In light of this, it is vital for drivers to abide by the multiple safety regulations in place to ensure safe highways.
At Zelman & Hanlon, our attorneys have the experience needed to hold truck drivers accountable. In addition to drivers spending too many hours behind the wheel, truck accidents can be caused by:
- Driver fatigue or inattention
- Drunk driving/DUI or speeding
- Aggressive or negligent driving
- Excessive, unsecured or unbalanced cargo loads
- Improper truck or trailer maintenance
- Equipment failure such as tire-tread separation, tire blowout or brake failure
Fault can also extend to other parties such as the trucking company, the owner of the cargo and the truck manufacturer. There are many state regulations for truck drivers and trucking companies. It is important to understand these regulations when seeking compensation for your injuries.
