The causes of truck accidents and safety issues

Every year in the United States, hundreds of thousands of people are injured and killed in truck accidents. All states, including Texas, continue to search for ways to reduce the number of accidents and subsequent deaths and injuries.

As a driver of a passenger vehicle, it is important to understand what can cause a truck accident. When you know the factors that come into play, you can do your best to avoid dangerous situations.

Here are some of the questions that are commonly asked following a truck accident:

-- Was the truck properly maintained by the driver and trucking company?

-- Was the driver on the road too long before being involved in the accident?

-- Has the driver faced problems in the past, such as speeding tickets or being arrested for driving under the influence?

-- Was the driver under the influence or drugs and/or alcohol?

-- Was the driver distracted at the time of the accident? This could include things such as talking on the phone, texting or eating.

-- Was the accident caused by a defective part?

-- Was the truck carrying an unbalanced or unsafe load?

The number of trucks on the road continues to increase, meaning that the chance of being involved in an accident will also rise.

Knowing the common causes of truck accidents may help you remove yourself from harm's way the next time you take to the road.
