Common injuries resulting from trucking accidents include:

Trucking accidents may result from the negligence of several different parties.  Those responsible may include:

  • the truck's driver
  • the owner of the truck or trailer connected to the truck
  • the person or company that leased the truck or trailer from the owner
  • the manufacturer of the vehicle, tires, or other parts that may have contributed to the cause or severity of the accident, and
  • the shipper or loader of the truck's cargo (in cases involving improper loading).  Shifting of the truck’s cargo may distract the truck’s driver resulting in a catastrophic accident.   

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

The most common causes of truck accidents are driver error, mechanical failures, weather conditions, road design, and traffic signal failures.

Examples of driver error include:

Use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, speeding, sleep deprivation, fatigue, inattention, distractions, work environment, and unfamiliarity with the road

Examples of equipment failure include:

  • brake problems resulting from removing or depowering the front brakes, which can cause a truck to jackknife
  • brake failure due to inadequate adjustments
  • tire blowouts due to wear and tear
  • improper securing or load distribution, contributing to truck rollover
  • defective steering
  • improper trailer attachment
  • defective side or rear lighting, and
  • transmission failure
