The Leading Causes of Truck Accidents

Big trucking companies are required to follow strict safety protocols designed to protect their drivers and the motorists with whom they share the road. When they are ignored, catastrophic accidents can happen, causing injuries that can last a lifetime. Here in Erie, we've seen big rigs jackknife on I-90 and many other serious truck accidents on our local roads.

The leading causes of truck accidents are:

  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue caused by unrealistic company expectations
  • Distracted driving
  • Overloaded and/or unbalanced loads
  • Insufficient safety maintenance
  • Improper inspections
  • Subpar driver training
  • And more

Our top-rated Erie accident lawyers can help you no matter what type of truck:

  • Street sweepers, armored trucks, and box trucks
  • Cement trucks and garbage trucks
  • Tanker trucks, coal trucks, and Marcellus Shale trucks
  • Flat beds, tow trucks, tractor trailers, and 18-wheelers
  • And more
