What Causes Truck Accidents to Happen?

Large commercial trucks and semis are a common site on highways throughout Kentucky and the rest of the country. Yet, despite federal and state driving rules designed to keep drivers in all vehicles safe, truck accidents are still a common occurrence because of carelessness and negligence such as:

  • Driving while fatigued
  • Not logging hours properly
  • Texting and driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to properly maintain a vehicle
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield to other traffic
  • Cutting off other vehicles
  • Unsafe driving practices in construction areas
  • Failing to evenly balance trailer cargo
  • Ignoring recall notices
  • Failing to inspect vehicles for tire defects or balding tires
