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.
