3 Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Three common causes of semi truck crashes include:

  1. Truck Driver Error
    Truck drivers must be well-trained and well-rested when behind the wheel. But some truck drivers are inexperienced — while others may drive while sleep-deprived, distracted, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These are all factors for driver error, which can lead to serious accidents.
  2. Poor Truck Maintenance
    Tractor trailers, dump trucks, and box trucks need frequent maintenance to stay safe on the road. Often, trucking companies may neglect to maintain their trucks to increase profits and decrease downtimes. If a single part of a truck’s brakes, engine, transmission, or other equipment fails, the truck may become uncontrollable and cause a major accident.
  3. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Violations
    The FMCSA specifies how much weight trucks can carry and how many hours drivers can travel without rest. Sometimes trucking companies overload trucks or place unrealistic timelines on drivers to increase profits, which can lead to multi-car pileups and serious injuries.

Many factors can contribute to semi truck accidents. Our truck accident lawyers can investigate to determine who was responsible. We’ll use our legal knowledge and experience to hold that party accountable for your accident-related expenses.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
