How Truck Accidents Can Occur

Driving next to a semi-truck on a highway can be nerve-wracking… and for good reason! A collision with a truck does not tend to look good for the smaller vehicle. Truck accident injuries can be devastating, resulting in broken bones, bruises, head and neck injuries, whiplash, trauma, paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia, and even death.

Because of the extreme risk to other vehicles, truck drivers are required to participate in special training and are held to a higher standard legally. For example, truck drivers are considered commercial drivers (if their truck weighs more than 26,001 pounds), so they be charged with a DUI if their BC level is at or above 0.04 percent. Despite these stricter regulations for truck drivers, studies show that in the years 2011-2015, there were 31, 873 truck-related accidents in Pennsylvania. According to FMCSA, causation for the crash much more likely to be a fault of the driver than other factors, and most often, the crash occurs as a collision with another vehicle.

Just a few of the causes of truck accidents include:

  • Jackknifing (accidental folding of a semi-truck)
  • Swerving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Improper driver training
  • Brake malfunction
  • Speeding
  • Tire defects
  • Drunk driving
  • Unsecure load
  • Distracted, negligent, or reckless driving
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
