What You Should Know about Truck Accidents

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

In order to reach their destinations, drivers of commercial truck must often travel many miles and across more than one state. Truck drivers often drive for long hours with little in the way of rest in order to meet deadlines. Driving for hours can increase fatigue, increasing the risk of an accident due to negligence and improper attention to traffic laws.

 

Other factors can increase the risk of collision with these types of larger trucks. Too much weight or unbalanced loads can lead to an increased hazard to other drivers, as it makes it more difficult for drivers to make turns and handle lane changes safely. Individual truck drivers may have issues with emotional instability, or may engage in speeding or reckless driving.

 


Whatever the reason, accidents involving big rigs create an increased risk of personal injury due to the size and weight of the vehicle. Additional risks due to explosion and overturning may be based on the load being hauled.
