What are some other causes of large truck wrecks?

From truck driver fatigue to icy roads, large truck collisions happen for a myriad of reasons. That said, it is especially important for truck drivers and trucking companies to understand some of the other causes of large truck crashes, such as defective tires and brakes that are not working properly. Sadly, many either ignore these types of problems are unaware of them in the first place, which may lead to an accident in San Diego, or somewhere else in the U.S.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration covered many of the other causes of large truck crashes, such as defective brakes and tires. Other factors that may lead to an accident include steering problems, drivers who do not have very much experience and overloaded trucks. Sadly, some of these factors are overlooked, placing the lives of truck drivers and others on the road at risk.

Between the sheer size of a semi truck and the length of time it can take truck drivers to come to a complete stop, these collisions often have particularly tragic outcomes for victims. To make matters even worse, many of these crashes could have been prevented if trucking companies would have taken the time to ensure that their trucks are not defective.

Victims of large truck wrecks may be experiencing any number of different hardships, from physical pain to financial woes and even emotional pain due to the loss of a loved one. When someone’s negligence contributes to a tragic truck collision, they must be held answerable for their actions.
