In an article for the Sarasota Herald Tribune, award-winning Florida personal injury attorney Ted Babbitt describes the most common causes of truck accidents.
Here are a few potential hazards to be aware of when sharing the road with semi trucks:
- Driver errors: An error on the part of the truck driver can include anything from reckless driving (e.g., speeding) to distracted driving to substance use and/or abuse.
- Problems with the vehicle: Mechanical failures can happen when there is a faulty design or installation of truck parts, such as when brakes fail to operate properly.
- Problems with the road: When roads are not kept in good maintenance, or when there are obstacles on them, they can potentially cause accidents.
