Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks may very well be considered the largest vehicles on the road and their size makes them a force to be reckoned with. Although federal regulations enforces certain rules for truck drivers, many choose not to follow these in order to carry larger loads and make better time.

When a truck accident does occur, it is often much more serious than those that take place between passenger vehicles.

Some common reasons for truck accidents in Montana include:

  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Trucking regulations violations
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Negligent oil tankers
  • Poor equipment operation
  • Dangerous drivers
  • Driver fatigue

Jackknifing, rollovers, and runaway trailers are also recognized as dangers to be aware of for big rigs. If a driver does not brake in time or ignores blind spots, it can create trouble on the road.
