Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Commercial truck accidents differ from car accidents in several ways, including their causes. Commercial trucks are heavier and larger than passenger vehicles, and trucks haul trailers with significant loads. This size and weight difference make trucks more difficult to stop than other vehicles; it also contributes to blind spots or areas where truck drivers cannot see smaller vehicles that may surround them.

Blind spots are a common cause of truck accidents. Blind spots on commercial trucks are at:

  • The front of the cab
  • Directly behind the truck driver’s window
  • On the right side of the truck
  • Directly behind the storage area and behind the driver

Other common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Faulty equipment
  • Improper maintenance
  • Distracted driving
  • Lack of driver training

Compensation for a Truck Accident Injury

Trucking companies carry more extensive insurance policies than drivers of passenger vehicles, and truck accident injuries are often more severe than passenger vehicle accidents. Therefore, damage awards in truck accidents are generally higher than car accidents.

Typical victim compensation covers:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Home health care
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
