All too often, many of these trucks are involved in one or more truck accidents during a given year. Every sixteen minutes, one person is killed or injured in a truck accident. That is a death or injury of someone with a family, children, parents or siblings.

Common Causes of Big Rig Accidents

Truck companies push their drivers haul their goods for a  maximum amount of time to increase their profits.   As a result many truck drivers take greater risks on our roads leading to a greater chance of truck-car crashes.   A list of the most common causes of roadway truck accidents are as follows.
  • Sleep Deprivation
  • Aggressive driving
  • DUI: Drinking and driving on the road
  • Speeding truck drivers
  • Defective roadways
  • Load carried greater in weight what truck can safely
  • Improper maintenance of delivery truck
  • Driving under the influence of drugs

Experienced and knowledgeable attorneys will help you receive the compensation you are owed.

Truck accident statistics

Statistics over the past several years have indicated that each year, close to 100,000 victims are injured in large truck accidents. These are unfortunate, and certainly avoidable. Safety on the road should be everyone’s number one priority. Due to negligence of one person or another, these truck accidents result in billions of dollars in estimated costs every year. If you are involved in a truck accident, you’ll need the contact information of everyone involved. Every person should exchange insurance information and be prepared for follow up action at a later date. Not to mention, you could end up with thousands of dollars of expenses due to medical bills and lost work hours, depending on the severity of the truck accident. You may be wondering how you are going to be able to return to work, how are you going to afford these bills, and how can you take care of your family?
