Commercial trucks are significantly bigger and weigh much more than passenger vehicles. When the two collide during an accident, the extent of damages and injuries can be serious if not deadly. This means everyone driving commercial trucks and passenger vehicles needs to pay attention, drive defensively, and practice safe driving habits.
When truck accidents do occur, there can be all sorts of causes and reasons. These could include:
- Distracted Driving
- Drowsy Driving
- Inclement Weather
- Poor Road Conditions
- Mechanical Failure
It is important to remember, truck drivers are not always to blame for causing accidents. Drivers of passenger vehicles can cause accidents for the same reasons.
