Truck accidents are much more dangerous than typical car crashes due to the size and weight of trucks. An 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds versus an average passenger vehicle weighs 4,000 pounds. Truck accidents lead to more serious injuries or even death compared to passenger vehicle accidents based on size and weight. Yet, truck drivers do not always drive with the care and attention they should. Also, trucks are not always safe to drive.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, reasons for truck accidents include: driving out of the travel lane into another lane or off the road; loss of control of the vehicle due to traveling too fast for conditions and colliding with the rear of another vehicle.
Truck driver’s negligent behavior may include: falling asleep at the wheel, inattentive or distracted driving due to something inside or outside the vehicle, following vehicle too closely, prescription drug use, unfamiliarity with the roadway, fatigue, brake problems, alcohol or illegal drug use.
