What are some common causes of trucking accidents?

Trucking accidents are caused by a variety of reasons. More often than is acceptable, truck companies try to cut expenses by cutting down on safety. This results in many unsafe trucks. Other common causes of semi truck/tractor-trailer collisions include:

  • Aggressive or reckless driving
  • Failure to install blind-spot mirrors
  • Defective brakes
  • Bald tires
  • Unsteady loads
  • Drugs or alcohol
  • Sleep deprivation
