The Bigger They Are, The More Serious The Accident
An accident with a large truck, such as an 18-wheeler, farm equipment and others, can be devastating to the driver of the other vehicle. Even the largest SUVs are small in comparison to these types of vehicles on the road, which is why they are required to have special licenses, and their drivers must have special training.
Common Causes Of Accidents
Despite all the laws and standards that are put in place to improve the safety of large trucks on the road, accidents still occur. When they do, the injuries can be very serious, and even result in fatalities in many instances. These types of accidents can be caused by many things, including:
- Tired truck drivers
- Negligent hiring
- Lack of training
- Improperly maintained equipment
- Faulty equipment
- Distracted driving
- Weather conditions
- Driver errors
Determining the cause of an accident is critical for any type of personal injury or wrongful death case.
