Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Las Vegas, Nevada
With their high center of gravity, massive weight and restricted mobility, tractor-trailers are especially dangerous when they are operated in a careless manner or are not properly maintenance.
It’s probably not surprising that truck accidents result in a higher rate of severe injury and wrongful death than car accidents. If you were hurt or a family member was killed in a semi-truck accident, the Las Vegas truck accident attorneys at Lloyd Baker may be able to help you pursue the financial security you need and deserve.
The commercial trucking industry is highly competitive. While there are strict federal and state laws regulating driver hours, maintenance schedules and cargo limits, many of these rules are broken to maximize profits.
Common contributing factors of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Overloaded trailers
- Inadequately secured cargo
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Aggressive driving
- Mechanical failure or defective equipment
- Faulty maintenance
- Poorly trained drivers
