The causes of truck accidents vary, however, often the cause of a truck accident can be narrowed down to few situations we have [unfortunately] seen over the years. Trucking companies often place a high priority on speed of delivery and cutting costs, not on safety. This unfortunately increases the risk that motorists in Florida will be severely injured or killed due to a truck accident.
Even the best trucking carriers and best truck drivers can still make errors on the road and be the cause of a catastrophic accident. Typical truck and commercial vehicle accident causation includes, but is not limited to:
Carrier and Employer Negligence in Hiring non-Qualified Driver(s)
Defective Truck Equipment
Truck Driver Negligence
Truck Driver Fatigue
Improper or Disregarded Truck Maintenance
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol
Criminal Acts of Truck Driver
Aggressive Driving of Truck Driver
Disregard of Weather Conditions
