The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the federal government. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is an agency that oversees the industry. When trucking companies bend the rules and cut corners, they put everyone at risk. A truck accident might be caused by a driver or trucking company not following the rules or regulations in place to protect the public. If that's true, you may have grounds for a solid trucking company negligence lawsuit.
Some of the other common causes of truck accidents include:
- Overloaded trucks
- Fatigued truckers
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Truck break failure
- Texting truck drivers, or driver distraction
- Excessive speed due to unrealistic delivery schedules
- Drunk driving, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
