Millions of Dollars Successfully Recovered Let Our Award-Winning Team Pursue Maximum Compensation

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are unfortunately very common on California freeways, and many of them are caused by some form of negligence. Trucks are already large and dangerous enough without compounding that danger by careless behavior. With more than 15 million trucks on the road transporting 70% of all U.S. freight annually, trucks can present a very real threat to traffic safety if drivers and companies are neglectful of their duties.

According to the FMCSA, these are the most common causes of truck accidents:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Defective truck equipment
  • Truck maintenance failures
  • Inexperienced/inadequately trained drivers
