Common Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Tractor trailer accidents are some of the most complex in car accident cases. They are extremely dangerous and typically result in debilitating injuries and even death. Although truck accidents occur less frequently than passenger car accidents, they do happen and can leave serious impacts on quality of life for hundreds of people.

There are laws and regulations in place for these drivers to avoid large-scale accidents, however, incidents do still occur. Here are the common causes of tractor-trailer accidents in Arizona:

- Issues with the brakes
- Traffic flow interruptions and road congestion
- Overloaded cargo
- Driver fatigue due to deadline stress
- Poor maintenance
- Bad road or weather-related conditions
- Driving at high speeds
- Prescription drug use
- Unfamiliarity with the route or road
- Required stops including crosswalks or stop lights
- Inadequate surveillance
- Failure to maintain a truck log

In addition, there are also instances of heart attack or other physical impairment suffered by the truck driver. Sometimes distraction comes into play or the tractor-trailer driver just failed to judge a situation accurately.

What Makes Accidents With Tractor Trailers So Dangerous?

Tractor trailer accidents are among the most deadly in car accident situations. Due to the congestion of trucks on Arizona’s roads, as well as the immense size of these trucks and the speed the truck is going, these vehicles prove to be highly dangerous to passenger cars.

Here are some of the statistics we found when it comes to tractor-trailer incidents being a danger on the road:

- 50% of truck accidents that occur are due to driver fatigue according to the National Transportation Safety Board
- 20% of truck drivers have said they have fallen asleep while driving
- Over 500,000 of these accidents occur every year — that’s in the US

With such high statistics, it’s clear that these accidents do unfortunately happen and leave their negative impact on all parties involved. At the Law Offices of Samuel P. Moeller, we understand the sensitive nature of these horrible accidents, especially when a death or life-long debilitating injury is sustained. We will represent on your behalf while you’re working through the emotional pain and suffering that a truck accident leaves behind. We give you the peace of mind you need while fighting for justice in your case. If more cases are properly presented and fought in a court of law, we hope that these regulations become even stricter and more accidents will be avoided in the future.

Often times, there are tractor-trailer incidents that can occur as a result of another passenger cars negligence and carelessness on the road. These situations are far more complex and require the help of a professional that will go to the right person for your settlement. The more people involved, the harder the liability is to prove and the length of the trial could go on for a long time. Let a lawyer handle these time-consuming situations for you to ensure all deadlines for truck accident filings are met.
