Causes of Big Rig Accidents
Data collected by federal and state on semi-trailer accidents often finds that the causes of big rig accidents typically include speeding, fatigued driving, distracted driving and improperly loaded cargo.
Improperly Loaded Trucks
Failing to load a truck properly can lead to the shift of materials inside the truck or on the road. When cargo spills or shifts happen, the end result is a crash and severe injuries.
18-wheeler trucks are some of the largest vehicles on the road. The sheer weight and size of large commercial trucks puts passenger cars at a distinct disadvantage.
In Texas, Oklahoma, and across the country, there are certain rules and regulations that all truckers and trucking companies must adhere to. When an irresponsible driver or careless truck company disobeys these laws, they need to be held accountable.
