Truck Accident Scenarios

October 5, 2022 in Uncategorized | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

A truck accident often has much more devastating results than a car accident. Trucks are much larger in size, especially commercial trucks which can carry tens of thousands of pounds of cargo. If a truck accident involves cargo that is flammable or hazardous, such as fuel, it can result in greater injuries or fatalities. When a driver loses control of a truck, innocent victims can be seriously injured. 

Many things can result in a truck accident, from poor weather conditions to a moment of distracted driving. Sadly, many truck accidents are preventable. Drivers may become tired, drive at a dangerous speed, or fail to inspect their truck to ensure it is safe to use on the road. Some of the most common types of accident scenarios include:

  • Speeding or unsafe driving
  • Talking or texting on the phone
  • Reaching for objects in the truck
  • Failing to check mirrors or blind spots
  • Poorly timed lane changes
  • Lack of sleep or tiredness
  • Mechanical failure
