Causes for a Semi-Truck Accident

Driver Error

More often than not, semi-truck drivers will justify their energy level in an effort to meet the mileage goals the companies that hired them arranged. Driving under the influence, looking at their cellphone for directions, talking, and even texting on the phone cannot be disregarded, either.

Missed or Disregard for Semi-Truck/Trailer Maintenance

As semi-trucks drive thousands of miles within several days, mechanical components must be fixed regularly. Something as simple as pushing off the replacement of brake pads or a broken windshield can be the cause of an accident.

Broken Parts

If a single part of the truck or trailer is broken, it may not be the driver’s fault, but a deadly accident can still happen. The owner of the truck or trailer with the broken part(s) can be held liable, if not the part manufacturer and the company that installed the defective part.

Cargo Loaded Incorrectly

Semi-trucks must be loaded correctly to ensure safe transportation of cargo. Improperly loaded trailers can cause cargo to bounce off the trailer or even make the truck and trailer flip during curves and hills due to disproportionate weight placement.
