Serious Injuries Involving Truck Collisions
Drivers of 18-wheelers, big rigs, as well as smaller van/trucks driven by UPS and other delivery services, typically keep logs of specific details. The truckers also are required to get regular inspections and repairs. If drivers have not kept up to date on these tasks, they may be liable. Causes of serious truck accidents that lead to an injury include:
- Distracted driving
- Faulty equipment
- Driver exhaustion
- Excessive speed
- Excessive weight
- Following too close to other vehicles
