There are roughly 500,000 trucking accidents every year in the United States, accounting for 5,000 fatalities. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by truck driver errors.

Types of Truck Driver Negligence

One in every eight traffic accident deaths is caused by an 18-wheeler accident. Even though a number of these accidents are caused by factors outside the truck driver’s control, there are many that could have been averted if the truck driver had acted responsibly and with care. Some of the most common reasons for 18-wheeler accidents include these types of truck driver negligence:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Reckless driving
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Using cell phone while driving
  • Driving while drowsy

Even minor 18-wheeler accidents can cause devastating damage and injuries. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a reckless truck driver, you need to take action today.
