Examples of Causes of Truck Accidents
The trucking industry is highly regulated yet not always ironclad. Truckers are supposed to limit the amount of time spent behind the wheel to avoid becoming fatigued. However, truckers are often under tremendous pressure to quickly move their cargo. They sometimes try to cut corners to move their products faster. At Zbinden & Curtis, we're aware of these tricks. We're prepared to investigate the trucking company that caused your accident and find out if any violations played a role in the crash.
The following are some common causes of truck accidents in Oregon:
- Speeding trucks
- Drunk truck drivers or truckers driving under the influence of drugs
- Truck drivers who are poorly trained or inexperienced
- Trucks with mechanical problems, such as malfunctioning tires, brakes or lights
- Distracted truck drivers who send or read text messages from behind the wheel
