Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Tried truck driver

Truck Driver Fatigue

Drivers who spend too much time behind the wheel without adequate rest can experience fatigue. Driving while fatigued is dangerous, as the driver will have impaired reflexes and slower decision-making skills. We can check a driver's log and see if they are meeting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's hours of service regulations. 

Truck and cars speeding on freeway


Demanding schedules and poor route planning can lead truck drivers to speed. This can cause an accident with larger trucks as they're harder to maneuver and take longer to slow down. If the truck driver was speeding, our personal injury attorneys can reconstruct the accident to prove fault. 

Truck Improper Maintenance

Improper Maintenance

Drivers and their employers must keep their trucks in good working order and have them regularly checked and serviced. Without the proper attention, brake defects, bad tires, and other broken truck parts can be major factors in causing a truck accident. 

Rainy weather in Florida

Weather and Road Conditions

Rain, fog, debris, and poorly-maintained roads can make truck driving difficult. The weather and road conditions can set the conditions for a truck accident. We work with investigators who can recreate the accident, highlighting the weather or road conditions. This knowledge can be used to help determine fault.  

Truck driver

Unqualified Drivers

All commercial truck drivers must pass tests that demonstrate their qualifications to drive such a large vehicle. Every driver must have a valid health certificate issued by a doctor. A history of fainting or seizures is disqualifying. Drivers are also not allowed to use medication that causes drowsiness while behind the wheel. Our truck accident lawyers can see if the driver has the proper certifications to be a truck driver and if they have anything in their medical history that should have kept them off of the road. 

Truck with too much cargo

Overloaded or Unsecured Cargo

To prevent tire blowouts and cargo from tipping over, trucks must meet weight limits. It is also the duty of the driver and the trucking company to make sure the cargo is fastened securely. The cargo must have secure weight distribution and be properly packed. Unsecured or overloaded cargo is more likely to roll over, especially if the driver has to make a sharp turn or unexpected stop. Transported goods can also fall out of the truck, creating road dangers for other drivers.
