Causes of Truck Accidents — Truck Drivers
A trucking accident can be caused by any number of factors, such as:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Brake malfunctioning
- Improper securing of loads and overloading trucks
- Truck driver alcohol or drug use
When a hazardous substance or liquid is being transported, an 18-wheeler accident can be especially dangerous. Many large trucks transport flammable and other hazardous liquids. Accidents involving these vehicles can cause serious burn injuries and other injuries affecting large numbers of individuals.
Causes of Truck Accidents — Other Vehicle Drivers
Many truck accidents are caused by the other driver's negligence. At the law firm of Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C., we have handled many trucking accident cases involving a variety of factors, such as:
- Driving in the "no-zone" area of the truck, such as in the blind spot or behind the truck
- Swerving or cutting in front of truck
- Driving too close behind truck
- Drunk driving
