Causes of Truck Accidents
A report by the Center for Truck and Bus Statistics stated that out of all of the driver factors that influence truck accidents, the most common are:
- Failing to stay in the correct lane (10.9 percent)
- Inattentive driving (6.1 percent)
- Driving too fast for the road and weather conditions (4.8 percent)
- Failing to yield (4.0 percent)
- Drinking while driving (3.1 percent)
- Cellphone use (0.3 percent)
Truck driver fatigue can also play a role. When trucking companies encourage or demand that employees drive too many hours in a row, serious accidents often result. In addition, other types of negligence can cause accidents, such as failing to properly train truck drivers, failing to properly maintain the vehicles, overloading the trucks, and more.
Our law firm has some of the most trained and professional truck accident lawyers in New York who bring with them years of experience, having the ability to conduct a detailed investigation of the accident in order to determine who was at fault. Once you contact Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, a professional lawyer will move quickly to preserve important evidence, such as black box data and trucking company maintenance records, before that evidence can be lost or erased.
