Traffic accidents are a leading cause of catastrophic injuries and tragic deaths, and large commercial trucks often play a role in these accidents. These vehicles – also known as semi trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, or big rigs – can cause a large amount of damage or even wrongful death from even a relatively “minor” accident due to their freight loads and very large size. Dump trucks and tanker trucks, the type that carry large amounts of liquid, also may be involved in this type of very damaging accidents.
Truck accidents may occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Poor road conditions
- Inadequate driver training
- Truck overloading
- Driver fatigue, stress, inattention, or carelessness
- Failure to see objects in one of a truck’s large blind spots
- Failure to leave enough space between truck and other vehicles
