Seeking Compensation Following a Serious Truck Accident

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Semi-truck accidents stem from various factors, often with catastrophic consequences.
Key contributors to these accidents include:
- Truck Driver Negligence: Driver negligence, whether due to drug influence or cellphone distractions, is a leading cause of accidents.
- Truck Company Negligence: Overloading and inadequate maintenance by truck companies heighten accident risks.
- Speeding: Trucks traveling at excessive speeds are harder to control and require longer distances to come to a stop.
- Weather Conditions: Adverse weather like rain, snow, or fog can reduce visibility and make roads slippery, contributing to accidents.
