Truck accidents are one of the most severe forms of auto accident. Large trucks, such as commercial vehicles and tractor-trailers, are capable of inflicting severe property damage and personal injuries.

Understanding Truck Accident Causes
Due to the fact that truck drivers are under strict deadlines, they often drive while fatigued. Truck drivers who fall asleep at the wheel cause some of the most serious traffic collisions. Since commercial trucks involve more maintenance than regular passenger vehicles, some accidents may be caused by a mechanical malfunction. If this is the case, then a personal injury claim can still be filed against the party responsible for the malfunction. Whatever the cause, if truck driver negligence of any kind is what caused your accident and ensuing injuries then you can seek a claim with the help of our firm.
Some of the most common truck accident causes are:
- Tired Driving
- Distracted Driving
- Vehicle Malfunction
- Drunk Driving
