The Attentive Care You Need to Secure Damages for Your Injuries

Large commercial trucks like 18-wheelers, semis, dump trucks, and gravel haulers are big vehicles that can put drivers of cars, motorcycles, and other passenger vehicles in danger if not operated properly.

Speeding, flying debris, tailgating, and unsafe lane changes can lead to accidents that cause severe damages and injuries. It’s the responsibility of the owner to keep these vehicles safe to protect other drivers and traffic on the road.

There are many negligent actions and behavior that can lead to truck accidents, including:

  • Tired driving
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe weather conditions

Tired driving is responsible for many accidents and other road incidents involving large commercial trucks. Government regulations cap how many hours a trucker can drive per day, as well as how many days in a row they can work. Companies that employ these drivers may not be adequately enforcing the rules, or even encourage violations by offering bonuses and other incentives.

Types of Trucking Accidents

Given the size and speed of most commercial trucks, combined with the fact that their drivers are often on the road for prolonged periods of time, there are many different kinds of truck accidents that occur.

Some of the most common possible truck accidents include:

  • Jackknife
  • Tire blowout
  • Wide turns
  • Head-on
  • Rear-end
  • T-bone
  • Truck rollovers
  • Under ride
  • Lost load

These accidents can be caused by issues with how the load is weighted, maintenance of the vehicle, and whether the driver is distracted, fatigued, or otherwise impaired.
