Common Causes of Washington Truck Driving Accidents
Commercial trucks and tractor trailers cause accidents for a number of reasons. These include:
- Following too closely
- Inability to stop in time to avoid causing an accident
- Tipping due to weather conditions or reckless driving
- Inadequate driver training or experience
- Inadequate driver supervision
- Not making wide enough turns
- Failure to respect blind spots
- Driver fatigue or falling asleep behind the wheel
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Driver fatigue is a particular concern with commercial transportation. Many truck drivers often ignore regulations regarding the number of hours they are allowed to drive without resting. Some drivers take over-the-counter, prescription and other drugs in order to drive longer hours. Unfortunately, these types of indiscretions often cause accidents that result in serious personal injuries and wrongful death.
