Common Types of Truck Accidents

Some of the most common types of truck accidents – like jackknifes, underride crashes, and rollovers – are often caused by errors, misjudgments, or misconduct by the trucker. When a trucker’s mistake or reckless action causes a truck accident, we are to help injured people get compensation.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

The mistakes and careless actions of truck drivers cause at least 40 percent of all truck accidents in the U.S.1 These are not the only issues, however, that can cause truck crashes.

For instance, the actions of trucking companies, other drivers, and even the manufacturers of trucking equipment can also contribute to trucking accidents.

At Dormer Harpring we are skilled at identifying all of the factors contributing to truck accidents in order to help injured people maximize their recoveries.

FMCSA Rules & Regulations

Federal trucking regulations cover everything from commercial truckers and their vehicles to the companies that employ truckers. For example, these rules cover issues like drivers’ on-duty time, cargo securement rules, and trucker drug testing.

The common theme tying these trucking regulations together is that they are all intended to prevent truck accidents, injuries, and deaths.

When FMCSA trucking regulations are violated and these violations lead to truck accidents, we can help injured people seek justice.
