Common Causes of Commercial Vehicle Collisions
Statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed many of the common causes associated with large commercial vehicles in the United States that include:
Distracted Driving – Truckers are often distracted while looking at their GPS device, talking on a smartphone, reading text messages or emails, or eating/drinking beverages while driving.
Driving Under the Influence – Truckers must avoid consuming alcohol or taking illegal drugs, including stimulants, which can create a dangerous scenario for all those sharing the road.
Changing Lanes with a Blind Spot – Nearly one out of every three crashes involving a large commercial vehicle and a passenger car is the result of the motor’s failure to recognize oncoming traffic due to a blind spot. If not seeing a truck and the mirrors could cause a catastrophic accident.
Aggressive Behavior – Aggressively operating a vehicle could result in wrongful death or severe injuries of innocent passengers and motorists.
Passing Commercial Vehicles – It is crucial to accelerate a constant speed when passing commercial vehicles on roadways. Never signal that you are moving over until you can see the entire front of the truck in the rearview mirror.
Drowsy Driving – Truck drivers should never operate their vehicles for long hours without taking breaks to minimize the potential of driving while tired.
Sometimes, the commercial vehicle driver will cause a crash because of their erratic movements or failure to ensure there was a substantial distance between their vehicle and those sharing the roadway. In these cases, both the trucking company and the truck driver should be held legally responsible for the crash and pay all associated costs and expenses that led to the wrongful death or severe injury.
