Common Reasons for Truck Accidents

Car accidents involving trucks are all too common on Oregon's highways. Because of the size of their vehicle, one small error made by a truck driver can create havoc on the road. Stopping distance, massive blind spots, and wide turning radius' all contribute to the likelihood of a semi-truck accident. Many such wrecks could be prevented with proper peparation or precautions, whether on the part of the driver or the trucking company.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue or distraction
  • Brake failure
  • Jack-knifing
  • Defective manufacturing practices
  • Runaway trailers
