Causes Of Trucking Accidents
Truck Drivers Must Be Safe And Cautious, Too
Big rigs are common on Arizona highways, hauling freight in every direction. They can weigh several tons and prove difficult to maneuver — two reasons why motorists must be on alert when sharing roads with them. But, sometimes, severe accidents involving these giant vehicles occur. And your motor vehicle stands little chance in an accident with a big rig. The result of a truck accident may be a serious injury or even death. Sometimes, a single truck accident can result in a number of individuals suffering severe injury.
You may not be able to afford to pay for the medical bills and other expenses you face due to your injuries. You need legal assistance to get the maximum compensation you deserve. Our aggressive and experienced legal team at Luis P. Guerra, LLC, in Phoenix, will be strong advocates for you. With almost a quarter century of experience as a personal injury attorney, Mr. Guerra will represent you and your family.
There Are Too Many Reasons Why Truck Driving Accidents Occur
Truck drivers may be at fault in a number of road accidents, but other parties may be at fault as well. Here are some factors that cause truck driving accidents:
Speeding: Excessive speeds continue to be one of the most common factors in motor vehicle accidents. Truck drivers often are under pressure to deliver freight in a short period of time. To meet their deadlines, they may resort to speeding.
Reckless driving: Driving too fast for conditions continues to be a common reason for truck accidents. Some truck drivers don’t play it safe and may not heed warnings of slick roads from rain, oil spills or snow.
Fatigue and exhaustion: Many truck drivers are on roads for extended shifts at the behest of their employer.
Alcohol and drug use: Because of the long hours alone on the road, truck drivers may turn to alcohol and legal and illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, amphetamine and methamphetamine. The result may lead to serious road accidents.
Improper or unbalanced loads: A simple shift while making a turn may cause a truck carrying an improper or unbalanced load to tip over and crash.
Equipment failure: Faulty brakes and defective tires are a common reason cited by truck drivers involved in accidents. Other related reasons include lack of inspections and faulty maintenance of the big rig by the trucking company.
