Causes of Truck and 18-Wheeler Accidents
18-wheeler and large truck accidents may be caused by:
- Driver error
- Lack of training on the part of the trucking company
- Parts defects
- Road defects
- Mechanical malfunction
- Tire blowouts
Because trucks and 18-wheelers are usually very large vehicles that require extremely long stopping distances, even minor mistakes made by truck drivers can have serious consequences for persons driving near them. If you have been injured by the negligence or recklessness of a truck driver or trucking company, you may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, medical bills, and other expenses.
