A Serious Truck Accident In Southern California Requires A Dedicated Attorney

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents
Of the 700,000 truck collisions that take place every year in the U.S., 45 percent are caused by the truck driver. Truck drivers are responsible for operating large vehicles that can cause mass destruction. This is why special rules and regulations apply to truck drivers.
Unfortunately, many truck drivers do not comply with federal regulations which can result in an accident occurring. Some of the more common ways truck drivers violate regulations include driving too fast, prescription or illegal drug abuse, aggressive behavior, driving while tired, performing an illegal driving maneuver, alcohol abuse, texting while driving and falsification of the logbook.
Other causes of truck accidents include:
- Defective vehicle parts
- Faulty tires
- Inadequate trailer lights or truck mirrors
- Poor road conditions
- Overloading of cargo
- Poor truck maintenance
