TRUCK  ACCIDENTS
 

While mechanical failures, reckless driving and improper driver training account for some crashes, the overwhelming cause is driver fatigue. The National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) reports that driver fatigue is responsible for 30% to 40% of all large trucks crashes and is the probable cause in over 30% of crashes that resulted in the truck driver's death. In a recent survey, almost 20% of truckers admitted to falling asleep at the wheel at least once in the previous three-month period.

All motorists should be aware of the dangers associated with sharing our roads with big rigs. Recent studies have concluded that automobile drivers must also accept responsibility for many tragedies resulting from car-truck accidents.  You should consider contacting an experienced
truck accident attorney.
