Large truck accidents are inherently more dangerous than car accidents. Approximately 4000 civilians were killed last year as a direct result of truck crashes. A truck’s weight, height, and length, in addition to its limited maneuverability, larger blind spots, and increased stop time, all increase the likelihood of a crash.
Commonly, the causes of big truck accidents can be attributed to negligence on the truck drivers part. Speeding, distracted driving, regulation violations, and drowsy driving are all common causes of big truck crashes.
