Semi Truck Crashes
Unfortunately, about 5,000 people in America are killed in auto accidents involving semi trucks. While tractor trailer accidents can happen on almost any road, about 27% of all tractor trailer accidents occur on highways. Higher speeds can make injuries more devastating.
Common Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents
Trucking accidents are among the most studied, because just one error by the truck manufacturer or driver can result in catastrophic injuries or death. The three most common reasons are Driver Critical Error, Vehicle Critical Error, and Environmental Effects. First, Driver Critical Error occurs when the trucker is not driving carefully. Above all, this is often the result of speeding, inattention, or fatigue. Second, Vehicle Critical Error occurs when a truck malfunction causes the accident. This can come in the form of brake failure, tire blowout, and other mechanical issues. Lastly, Environmental Effects can create tractor trailer accidents. Icy roads, heavy rain, and traffic can attribute to collisions.
