Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in California
Commercial trucks are massive vehicles that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Due to the significant size disparity between a commercial truck and an average passenger vehicle, motorists in passenger vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries when they are hit by a commercial truck. If a truck driver fails to abide by the rules of the road, ensure that their cargo is secure or take breaks at necessary intervals, they could cause an accident that results in the serious injury, or even death, of another driver.
While there are a number of factors that can lead to a truck accident, some of the most common causes include:
Driving while tired or fatigued
Reckless or aggressive driving
Trucking company negligence
Overloading a truck with cargo
Driving under the influence
Defective truck components
Violating hour of service rules
