Accident and Collision Causes

Negligence, carelessness, and distraction are the main causes of truck accidents. However, this is not always the case. Often times, responsibility befalls the commercial owner of the vehicle. Commercial trucking involves thousands of miles of wear-and-tear, and it is the responsibility of commercial owners to ensure that standards regarding wear, maintenance, and upkeep are met. By neglecting to take care of this, the risk of a mechanical malfunction greatly increases. Accidents caused by this negligence often involve litigation on the side of commercial owners.

Finally, there is the physical nature of commercial trucks - large loads, blind spots, noise, etc. can all factor into the cause of an accident.


Driver error is perhaps the most common cause of accidents. By the nature of the job, truck drivers are often subjected to long hours, extremely strict schedules, and associated factors like fatigue and distraction. Many of these realities create an incentive for truck drivers to speed, disobey traffic laws, and generally cut corners.

However, drive error can also be caused by human factors like falling asleep at the wheel, or zoning out. Often times, multiple vehicles may be involved, or may be a causal factor in collisions
