When a Californian driver gets into a crash with a truck driver, chances are they'll be the one worse for wear simply due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved. Because of these dangers, you may be wondering what causes truck accidents in the first place, and we at the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, JR. strive to answer this question for you.

The first thing you should be aware of is that truck drivers have a massive amount of pressure put on them in regard to making deadlines or hitting quotas. This is behind many of the dangerous behaviors that these drivers can exhibit, such as aggressive driving, driving without enough sleep, or having a schedule that is simply not realistic for a human being to maintain. They push themselves beyond their own limitations which can lead to dangerous situations for you and others on the road.

Other primary issues come from truck maintenance. The failure of equipment or the failure to properly maintain that equipment can lead to the truck breaking down on the road, causing accidents. Additionally, not following safety precautions or proper loading procedures can cause the cargo to come loose during the ride and fall freely onto the road, creating a hazard for anyone else.

As with any accident, there are many potential factors at work contributing to a crash. However, these are considered some of the most common. If you would like to read more about the causation behind truck accidents, follow the link to our web page.
