There are many different reasons why trucking accidents occur. Many times the drivers of these semi-tractor trailer trucks are at fault. Below we outline some of the more common issues that can contribute to a truck accident.
- Truck Accident – Speed
Speeding trucks – Speeding truck drivers cause countless accidents every year. It is one of the main reasons for trucking accidents. A professional truck driver is specially trained to haul large loads and it is critical that they follow the posted speed limits to prevent truck accidents.
- Truck Accident – Faulty Breaks
Bad semi-truck brakes – Improperly maintained brakes on semi-trucks can lead to accidents.
- Truck Accident – Bad Tires and Tire Blowouts
Truck tire blowouts – Large trucks carry heavy loads and with the high heat of the Orlando Florida roadways blow outs are very common.
- Truck Accident – Poor Maintenance
Poor truck maintenance – Poor maintenance of a semi-truck can have devastating consequences. Brakes, tires, and a host of other items need to serviced on a regular basis. A truck involved in an accident needs to be inspected to ensure that it was properly maintained and serviced. Lack of maintenance can cause parts to fail and cause accidents or a truck driver to lose control and crash.
- Truck Accident – Overload or Improper Loading
Improperly loaded trucks – Some trucking accidents that occur are the result of a commercial semi-truck simply not being loaded properly. The vehicles cargo must be properly distributed and adequately secured.
- Truck Accident – Inexperienced Truck Driver
Improper truck driving training – Truck drivers at a minimum must have a commercial motor vehicle driver’s license to operate a commercial truck. Many times a driver has not been properly trained to operate a truck. Trucking companies are required to have ongoing safety policies for their drivers so that they understand the truck and trailer they are driving.
