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
- Defective manufacturing practices
- Runaway trailers
- Inadequate training
Unfortunately, the commercial driving industry often pushes for their drivers
to carry more than is safe. This leads to overly-heavy trucks and drivers
who are trying to work faster just to get the job done. As a driver sharing
the road with these trucks, it is important to do your part in being on
the lookout for dangerous situations and maintaining safe techniques around big rigs.
