Truck accidents happen for many reasons

When a truck is involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle, the end result can be devastating. The size difference alone puts the people in the smaller vehicle at a disadvantage.

As a driver, you need to understand why truck accidents happen. This will allow you to avoid dangerous situations that could lead to serious injury and, often, death.

Here are some of the many reasons for truck accidents:

-- Negligent hiring and/or a lack of training

-- Overloaded cargo

-- Failure to properly maintain the vehicle

-- Defective truck equipment

-- Driving more hours than allowed by the law

-- Failure to keep logbooks and records

-- Speeding

-- Reckless driving

-- Driving under the influence or drugs or alcohol

As the driver of a passenger vehicle, you never know what will happen on the road. You never know what others, such as truck drivers, will do next. For this reason, you should pay attention to all drivers, making note of any that could be at risk of causing an accident.

Our attorneys are experienced in helping people recover compensation for injuries suffered in a truck accident. If you have any questions or concerns, they can help clear your mind.

If you are injured in such an accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. From there, once you are able to do so, you can learn more about your legal rights and what to do next. If the time has come to learn more, visit our "Tractor-Trailer Wrecks" webpage. It will provide you with a variety of information.
