Commercial truck accidents are not only devastating but also complex events that often result in serious injuries and fatalities. At Peterson and Associates, we understand the intricacies involved in such cases and are committed to helping victims seek justice. In this blog post, we will delve into the common causes of commercial truck accidents and shed light on how our firm can assist those affected.

Understanding the Causes:

  1. Driver Fatigue: One of the leading causes of commercial truck accidents is driver fatigue. Long hours on the road, tight deadlines, and inadequate rest breaks can all contribute to truck drivers experiencing fatigue behind the wheel. Our team investigates each case meticulously to determine if driver fatigue played a role and holds negligent parties accountable.
  2. Mechanical Failures: Another significant factor in commercial truck accidents is mechanical failures. Issues with brakes, tires, steering mechanisms, and other critical components can lead to catastrophic accidents. Our firm works with experts to identify any mechanical defects and pursue compensation from responsible parties, such as trucking companies or manufacturers.
  3. Distracted Driving: In today's digital age, distracted driving has become a pervasive problem among all motorists, including commercial truck drivers. Checking smartphones, adjusting GPS devices, or even eating while driving can divert attention from the road and increase the risk of accidents. Through thorough investigation and legal expertise, we ensure that distracted driving is addressed in each case.
  4. Inadequate Training: Commercial truck drivers are required to undergo extensive training to safely operate their vehicles. However, some drivers may lack proper training or experience, leading to errors on the road. Our firm examines the qualifications and training records of drivers involved in accidents to determine if inadequate training contributed to the incident.
  5. Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense that can have catastrophic consequences, especially when it involves commercial trucks. Our legal team meticulously examines police reports, toxicology results, and other evidence to establish if impairment was a contributing factor in the accident.
