Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck drivers have a tough job. They are often traversing the same routes, and often engage in negligent conduct while behind the wheel.

They are expected to deliver their cargo on time, no matter the:

  • Weather conditions
  • Traffic
  • And other factors that could slow a delivery

Some of the most common reasons truck accidents occur include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for weather conditions
  • Driving fatigue
  • Texting while driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Driver error
  • Equipment failure
  • Cargo loaded unevenly
  • Operating a truck while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Most Common Truck Accident Injuries: From Minor to Fatal

A fully loaded commercial truck is heavy, weighing up to 80,000 lbs. When hitting a passenger vehicle, there is no contest.

In the majority of truck collisions, it is not the truck driver who suffers injuries, but the driver and passengers of other vehicles.

The injuries sustained by others sharing the roadways around East Brunswick include:

  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries (TBI)
  • Lacerations
  • Head injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Amputations
