Most common causes of a Truck Accident

  • Negligent Driving
    Sending or reading text messages is one of the most frequent reasons for distracted or negligent driving, as well as one of the leading causes of car accidents.
  • Speeding
    Driving at high speeds makes the control of the car more difficult to maintain, so minimal and/or external factors can cause serious car accidents.
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol
    Any amount of alcohol in the blood of a car driver plays an important role in case of accidents, since it can slow down the driver’s capacity to react or, on the other hand, it can cause reckless driving due to the heart rate acceleration.
  • Mechanical failures
    Lack of maintenance is important because it is a considerable percentage of the causes of truck accidents.
  • Violation of traffic signals
    There are good reasons for the existence of traffic signs. Without them, driving on congested roads would be chaotic and more traffic accidents would happen. Drivers who disregard traffic signals not only injure themselves, but also put thousands of pedestrians at risk of serious accidents and injuries.
  • Overloaded Trucks
    Being aware of the capacity of the units could be a decisive factor in saving lives, so the driver’s responsibility and commitment is highly important.
