What are the Most Common Causes of Trucking Accidents?

There are many different factors that can cause a trucking accident. Here are some of the most common causes of Texas trucking accidents:

Truck driver is fatigued or drowsy

Drug or alcohol impairment

Driver is distracted
Commercial vehicle regulations ban drivers from using mobile devices while driving. Doing so is considered a serious traffic violation and could lead to a CDL suspension.
Speeding or driving too fast for road conditions/inclement weather

Unsecured loads
When large trucks fail to secure their loads properly, motorists are put at an extreme danger. Contents from these trucks, including hazardous materials, could spill onto the roadways, causing serious accidents.

Improper turning or lane changing

Failure to maintain vehicle
