Why Are Trucking Accidents So Common?
Trucking companies place a lot of pressure on their drivers to cut corners and break rules in order to meet tight deadlines. There are many laws that place restrictions on how long a trucker can drive in one sitting. However, some companies will offer bonuses to drivers who can make deliveries faster than expected, thereby incentivizing them to break the rules and put other drivers at risk.
The following are some common causes of truck accidents:
- Trucks with defective equipment
- Truck drivers who are operating while distracted
- Drowsiness and fatigue behind the wheel
- Truck drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Poor road design and maintenance
- Trucks that were unbalanced or Improperly loaded
- Safety equipment that is inadequate or in disrepair
- Missing safety equipment leading to Override and underride accidents
- Truck drivers who speed or drive recklessly
- Driving conditions that are unsafe
If an accident does occur, these companies will do everything in their power to protect their bottom line. Many trucking companies have a legal team at the ready to defend them when someone files a claim. While this may seem intimidating, rest assured that this strong response is partly because they know they are vulnerable. With a Sacramento truck accident lawyer by your side, you can fight for the full compensation that you are owed for your injuries.
