Causes Of Semi-Truck Crashes

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 4,136 people died in large truck crashes in 2018 and 96% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck were the occupants of the passenger vehicles.

Auto collisions with trucks are often the combination of both human error and the nature of truck driving itself. When you take a rushed, tired, or distracted truck driver and put them in charge of a vehicle that is hard to maneuver and 20 to 30 times heavier than the average car, this is a recipe for tragedy.

  • Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol Or Drugs
  • Wet Or Slippery Roads
  • Poorly Maintained Brakes
  • Improper Cargo Loading
  • Inexperienced Drivers
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Speeding

Common Big Truck Accidental Crash Injuries

As you can imagine, being in an accident with a large truck is no small matter. A momentary lapse in judgment, slippery road conditions, or lack of proper maintenance can run you off the road, push you into other lanes of traffic, or cause a collision between your vehicle and the semi-truck. The potential for injury in these circumstances is huge, and the chances of fatal injuries are terrible.
