Causes of Trucking Accidents

There are roughly 3.2 million truck drivers who share the road with other motorists in the United States. There are many factors that contribute to a collision involving a truck driver. Some of the common causes involving actions of the truck driver such as fatigue, distracted driving, cell phone use, texting, unsafe speed, illegal turns, inexperience or poor training, speeding and or equipment failure. These are factors that also contribute to collisions involving other motorists, but what sets them apart from a crash between two vehicles is an 80,000-pound truck is going to have a different outcome than a collision involving only cars.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
