Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents Are Far Too Common
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in 2018, there were over 37,000 truck and commercial vehicle wrecks in Texas alone. Many of these were fatal or caused serious injuries. While trucks may be necessary for transporting consumer goods, the number of serious truck accidents that occur is unacceptable.
Types of Truck Accidents
An override accident occurs when a large truck drives over the top of a smaller vehicle; an underride accident occurs when a smaller vehicle driver under the trailer of a truck. These accidents are often caused by tailgating or by cutting off a larger vehicle.
A jackknife collision happens when the truck’s trailer swings around to create a 90-degree angle with the truck cab.
Truck accidents are often caused by drunk or impaired drivers, including substance-impaired truck drivers.
Large trucks have large blind spots, and truck drivers often change lanes or perform other maneuvers as a result of failing to see smaller vehicles within blind spots.
Common distractions include texting, talking on the phone, personal grooming, and eating, among a number of others.
Aggressive behavior may include unsafe lane changes, tailgating, or failing to signal or yield the right of way.
Fatigued driving is often considered as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.
High rates of speed on expressways or highways may lead to catastrophic crashes.
