Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

Diesel trucks are essential for transporting all types of goods across the country, but they also carry a much higher risk of serious injuries when they are involved in motor vehicle crashes. The massive weight of semi-trucks makes them difficult to stop, and they carry a heavy impact when they collide with another vehicle. Cars don’t stand a chance when they collide with huge diesel trucks. With so much at risk, even a moment of negligence can easily lead to a tragedy when large trucks are involved in car wrecks. Some of the most common causes of 18-wheeler accidents include:

  • Failure to maintain the vehicle or its parts, including tires, brakes, and valve systems
  • Failure to obey traffic signs or lights
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Hauling loads that exceed maximum capacity
  • Improper passing
  • Inexperienced driver
  • Operating without sufficient sleep
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving

Liability In A Truck Accident

An accident involving a semi-truck can easily lead to devastating injuries. These damages may leave you with overwhelming financial costs, such as medical bills, lost wages, and necessary long-term care. Victims may be able to seek compensation from several different parties. Liable parties in an 18-wheeler accident can include:

  • The company that leased the truck
  • The company which employs the driver
  • Driver
  • The loader of the truck’s cargo
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle or its parts
  • Owner of the truck
