Common Causes Of Trucking Collisions
Truck accidents can be caused by something as simple as inattention. However, the most common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Failure to conduct routine safety inspections
- Tire blowouts
- Engine failure
- Brake failure
- Driver fatigue
The Importance Of Investigating The Accident Scene
After a commercial vehicle, semitruck or 18-wheeler wreck, it is critical you have legal representation. Trucking companies have a staff of defence lawyers ready to protect their interests. Likewise, you should have someone working on your team. Evidence can quickly disappear after an accident, including evidence from the truck’s black box.
