Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck companies pay their drivers by the mile and pressure them to meet tight delivery schedules. This means that many drivers do not pull over for a rest when they should. They drive tired and often too fast for conditions. Given that a loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. compared to a private passenger vehicle of perhaps 2,500 lbs, a collision can be catastrophic for the private passenger vehicle occupants. Trucks have to be loaded carefully to make sure the load is balanced and tied down. Failures can cause the trailer to slide out of control. The truck may roll over or jackknife across the road with cars crashing into the truck or each other. Another cause of accidents is poor maintenance. If a truck's brakes give out, it may plow into the cars ahead of it.
