Tractor Trailer Accidents May Cause Serious Injuries

Tractor trailers can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. This means they could cause immense damage to passenger vehicles. Failure to drive in a reasonably safe manner and obey federal and state traffic laws could result in a devastating accident. Underride accidents, which occur when a passenger vehicle runs into a tractor trailer, are often fatal. In fact, nearly 4,000 people died in large truck accidents in 2016 alone, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Common Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents

The most common causes of tractor trailer accidents include:

Overloaded or unbalanced cargo could cause a tractor trailer to rollover. Truck drivers must exercise caution and avoid drunk or drowsy driving. They must also inspect their vehicle before starting a trip, and use proper reflective tape to make the truck more visible. If they fail to uphold their duty of care to others on the road, they may be held liable for any injuries or property damage that occurs.
