Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents
Common Causes of Tractor-Trailer Accidents
Many things can go wrong while on the road, leading to an 18-wheeler, big rig or tractor-trailer accident.
Common causes of these often-devastating types of semi-truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Overweight loads
- Cellphones and text messaging
- Licensing issues and lack of proper training
- Reckless driving
- Mechanical malfunctions and improper maintenance
- Hazardous cargoes and spills
- Truck driver drug and alcohol use
- Traffic congestion on roads not equipped for high traffic volumes, often near Texas's oil fields
Regardless of why trucking accidents occur, they can cause horrible injuries and even death. Because truck accident injuries are so often catastrophic and disabling, the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation, equipment and possibly lifetime care can be extremely high. If poor maintenance or defective equipment played a role in causing an accident that results in serious injury or the wrongful death of your loved one, you may have more options and sources for financial recovery. Compensation from the trucking company and its insurer, or other responsible parties, can go a long way toward making life easier for your family and your injured family member after a serious truck crash.
Considering the extensive federal semi truck driving regulations it is important to contact an experienced semi truck accident lawyer to explore all aspects of your case. Generally, federal semi truck driving regulations are found within Chapter 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
