Truck Accidents & Negligence: The Causes
As with auto accidents, truck accidents are often caused by human errors, and these errors commonly arise from the negligent actions of drivers – either truck drivers or other motorists on the road.
Our Denver truck accident attorneys are dedicated to helping victims and their families obtain the compensation they deserve when negligence causes truck accidents.
When truck drivers are even partially responsible for causing traffic accidents, however, some of the specific forms of driver negligence that can be involved include:
- Trucker fatigue, which is a factor in about 13 percent of all truck accidents
- Trucker distraction, which can impair drivers’ abilities to perceive and properly respond to the driving conditions around them
- Trucker intoxication, which also prevents drivers’ from being able to safely maneuver trucks and appropriately respond to their changing driving environments
- Truckers’ failure to comply with any state or federal trucking regulations, which can result in truck equipment malfunctions (and other risks and problems).
