Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

Truck drivers are required to follow a strict set of rules once they obtain their commercial driver's license. These rules include keeping an accurate time log and taking mandatory breaks per consecutive hours requirements. However, drivers are paid by the mile, which gives them an incentive to keep false records or drive fatigued — a common cause of truck wrecks. Other common causes include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • Texting while driving
  • Improper passing or turn
  • Disobeying traffic signs
  • Speeding or other reckless driving
  • Ignoring hazardous road conditions
  • Poor maintenance/improper truck upkeep

In addition, it is possible for the trucking company to be liable for your injuries as well. We promise to investigate every potential avenue for your recovery as we work hard to maximize your compensation.
