Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when loaded with cargo. A collision with a passenger vehicle could cause serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, lacerations, internal hemorrhaging, bruises, broken or fractured bones, burns, and soft tissue injuries.

Improper vehicle maintenance is a common cause of truck accidents. Commercial vehicles must be maintained on a regular basis, and truck drivers are responsible to inspect their vehicles before and after each trip. Failure to provide proper maintenance could lead to equipment failure, such as worn brakes, broken steering mechanisms, and inadequate tire tread. Overloaded or imbalanced cargo could also cause the truck to tip over, and driver error or reckless driving could increase the risk of a crash.

Who Is Liable for a Commercial Truck Accident?

There are a variety of parties who may be held liable for a commercial truck accident:

  1. The driver of the truck
  2. The trucking company
  3. The cargo loading crew
  4. The third-party maintenance company

Truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to comply with regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If a truck driver fails to inspect his or her vehicle properly, fails to take mandatory rest breaks, or drives while drunk or drowsy, he or she may be held liable for your injuries. Truck drivers must also comply with federal and state traffic laws and avoid speeding, tailgating, weaving between lanes, and turning too sharply or widely.

Furthermore, trucking companies must abide by strict hiring practices and provide adequate maintenance for the vehicles. In some cases, trucking companies will hire third-party maintenance crews to perform necessary repairs and inspections. Maintenance companies and cargo loading crews may be held liable for a truck accident, depending on the situation.
