Due to the immense size, weight, and poor maneuverability of most Semi-Trucks, trucking accidents are all too common. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2005, 114,000 people were injured and an additional 5,212 killed in the nearly half million police-reported truck accidents.
Motorists should be aware that large trucks have certain speed, turning, visibility, and braking limitations. Many truck accidents occur as a result of these limitations. Other common truck accident causes include:
- Dangerous or reckless truck driving
- Overloaded or oversized trucks
- A fatigued or sleepy truck driver
- Insufficient truck driver training
- A truck driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Truck defects (defective tires, safety systems, etc.)
- Poorly maintained truck brakes
- Poor driving conditions (rain, snow, fog, etc.)
