Truck Accidents Cause Serious Injuries and Are Often Fatal

Truck accidents cause some of the most serious injuries and fatalities of all vehicle related crashes due to their weight and impact.  The  size of a truck and intensity of impact results in serious injuries and deaths. A  fatal trucking accident usually  occurs when large trailers (10,000+ lbs.) collide with other smaller vehicles. One out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision according to accident reports.

According To The Federal Highway Safety Administration Trucking Accidents Were Caused By:

Non-Performance: The driver fell asleep, was disabled by a heart attack or seizure, or was physically impaired for another reason.
Recognition: The driver was inattentive, was distracted by something inside or outside the vehicle, or failed to observe the situation adequately for some other reason.
Decision: For example, the driver was driving too fast for conditions, misjudged the speed of other vehicles, or followed other vehicles too closely.
Performance: For example, the driver panicked, overcompensated, or exercised poor directional control.
Other Factors

Brake problems
Traffic flow interruption (congestion, previous crash)
Prescription drug use
Traveling too fast for conditions
Unfamiliarity with roadway
Roadway problems
Required to stop before crash (traffic control device, crosswalk)
Over-the-counter drug use
Inadequate surveillance
Fatigue.
