Factors That Contribute to Truck Accidents

A wide range of factors can lead to a truck accident, but some of the most common causes include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Improper maintenance
  • Inadequately secured cargo
  • Faulty truck parts
  • Unqualified drivers
  • Speeding to meet a delivery deadline
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Driving under the influence

Responsible Parties in Truck Accidents

In many cases, the driver may not be the only person responsible for a truck accident; the trucking company may be liable as well. For example, if the company cuts corners on routine maintenance or if they forced the driver to meet an unrealistic deadline, you can pursue damages from the trucking company in addition to the driver.
