Why Do Trucking Accidents Occur?
According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation, there were 1,388 crashes involving trucks in 2016, 20 of which resulted in fatal crashes. Companies that utilize commercial vehicles, and the operators themselves, are required to adhere to strict safety standards when using these vehicles for their safety and the safety of others. Often this is not practiced and can result in disastrous consequences including serious injury and death. There are many causes of trucking accidents due to negligence including:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Improper maintenance of equipment or vehicle
- Unrealistic schedules enforced by the trucking company
- Insufficient training for commercial truck drivers
- Driving while distracted or fatigued including speeding
