What are some common causes of truck accidents?

Truck accidents can occur due to many different reasons. Drivers who are not licensed to drive commercial trucks or not trained properly can be dangerous when on the road. Driver fatigue, drunk driving, failure to follow traffic rules, distracted driving and recklessness are some other common causes of truck accidents.

Truck owners are also responsible for properly maintaining their vehicles and ensuring they are inspected for safety. Overloading commercial trucks may increase the likelihood of accidents. Mechanical failures such as faulty brakes or worn out tires can also lead to truck collisions.
