Commercial vehicle accidents can happen to anyone at any time. Because
of their sheer size, weight, and the speed at which they travel, large
tractor trailers and 18-wheelers tend to cause far more extensive damage
than smaller automobiles when they collide with other drivers. If you

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
There are many factors that come into play when determining the cause of
a truck accident. Whether the accident occurred as a result of poor company
defective truck parts, or the collision simply comes down to human error, our firm can look
at every detail of your unique circumstances in order to determine who
was at fault. We can help you understand your legal options and devise
a plan of action.
Some common causes of truck accidents involving negligence include:
- Unsafe or reckless driving behaviors
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Distracted or texting truck drivers
- Improper or inadequate training for drivers
- Driver fatigue due to increased driving hours
- Poor truck maintenance or equipment failure
- Defective parts, including truck tires and brakes
Unfortunately, it is all too common for truck companies to put profits
ahead of public safety. When this is the case, drivers may be pressured
to drive farther distances and longer hours in order to meet their quotas.
This often leads to negative consequences as drivers operate vehicles
while exhausted or use stimulants to stay awake. Truck parts also become
worn out quicker and, without proper maintenance, this can lead to accidents.
