Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck Crash Lawyers in Maryland

What Are the Main Causes of Truck Accidents?

Like all accidents, identifying the cause of your truck accident will go a long way in determining whether you’re eligible for compensation under the law. Our experienced commercial vehicle and truck accident lawyers have the resources and know-how to investigate the circumstances behind your crash and determine its cause.

Some typical truck crash causes can include (but are not limited to):

  • Alcohol or drug-abuse on the part of the driver
  • Driving on the freeway without properly securing a tail load
  • Fatigue from driving long-distances without stopping often enough
  • Imprudent driving during inclement weather
  • Passing at an inappropriate time or otherwise being negligent when changing lanes
  • Failing to spot passing cars in the truck’s blind spot
  • Tailgating, driving above the speed-limit, or other reckless/aggressive driving behaviors
  • Poor maintenance of the trailer or cabin that results in reduced sighting or truck functionality
  • Blow-out of tires (or tire treads) that leads to loss of steering control
  • Jackknifing as a result of taking a turn too hard
  • Rolling over the truck as a result of over-correcting for a sharp turn
  • Bad road conditions
  • Lane cutting
  • Improper storage or loading of hazardous materials
  • Improper storage or loading of cargo that results in a release of some or all of the cargo on to the road
