The most common causes of trucking accidents

All accidents can be dangerous and scary, but trucking accidents can result in even more serious injuries and frequent fatalities. If you have been involved in a collision with a large truck, you may be wondering what the cause of the accident was and how it could have been prevented. We at the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., have detailed the top reasons for trucking accidents in California and across the country.

According to GTG Technology Group, one of the most common causes of trucking accidents was equipment failure. This can be due to poor maintenance by the driver or company, but can also occur if the manufacturer used faulty parts or installation. There will likely be many people in this situation who could be at fault.

While poor maintenace and equipment failure are possibilities, the most common reason for trucking accidents is driver error, although it is usually not the fault of the truck driver. Some studies have shown that 81 percent of collisions involving large trucks and passenger vehicles are the result of mistakes made by the driver of the smaller car.

Truck drivers can make errors when loading their cargo that can also lead to accidents. If the weight shifts or it is improperly balanced, the load can fall off in the road or can cause the truck to swerve out of control.

Some accidents are also due to weather creating slippery conditions or limited visibility. For more information on trucking accidents and what you can do about them, please visit our website.
