All accidents have the potential to cause serious injury and take place on a regular basis, and can be very damaging. When a tractor trailer weighing more than 10,000 pounds is involved in a collision with a passenger vehicle, or with a pedestrian, the result can be very serious injury or fatalities. More than 500,000 trucking accidents happen yearly in the United States, many of which result in fatalities or debilitating permanent injuries.
Truck accidents are caused by inattentive drivers, inexperienced drivers, speeding drivers attempting to make tight schedules, failure to follow safety procedures, mechanical failures, improper maintenance, fatigued drivers, brake failure, improper backing, tire blow outs, overloaded trailers, and failure to follow government rules and regulations.
