Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents
The trucking industry is highly regulated by the federal government because of the danger that it poses to other cars on the road. Everything from the maximum driving time to required truck maintenance to the weight and size of a truck is regulated. Parties who fail to abide by these rules can be held liable for injuries.
Common causes of 18-wheeler truck accidents include:
Tire failure or separation
Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
Overweight cargo or freight
