Causes of Truck Accidents

  • Fatigued Driving - 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.
  • Improper Loading - 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.
  • Poor Maintenance - Another cause of accidents is poor maintenance. If a truck's brakes give out, it may plow into the cars ahead of it.

Delivery Truck Accidents

In recent years there has been an increase in online shopping, and this has created more chances to have products delivered to our front doors. This has also increased the number of delivery trucks you might see on the road; companies like Amazon use a multitude of delivery services, such as: Fed Ex, UPS, and the USPS (to name a few). Unfortunately, this has also increased the number of accidents that involve delivery vehicles.

Many of these delivery companies are million and billion dollar delivery services that do what they can to not admit fault in the event of an accident. Our law firm is not afraid to take on these big cases with companies. If you have been involved in an accident involving a delivery truck, do not hesitate in finding the legal help you need.
