Professional truck drivers are not immune to serious, life-changing errors. In reality, truck accidents happen regularly nationwide and can be attributed to a wide range of factors.


In fact, truck drivers are susceptible to:

  • Fatigue: Long hours on the road can lead to driver fatigue, impairing a driver’s ability to react quickly and make sound decisions.
  • Distracted Driving: Distractions such as mobile devices, in-cab technology, and even eating while driving can divert a driver’s attention from the road.
  • Impaired Driving: The use of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medications can impair a driver’s judgment and reaction times.
  • Inadequate Training: Not all truck drivers receive proper training, which can lead to errors and accidents on the road.
  • Improper Maintenance: Neglecting the maintenance of the truck can result in mechanical failures and accidents.

Common Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken Bones
  • Whiplash
  • Internal Injuries
  • Burns
  • Emotional Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What Types of Damages Can I Recover From a Trucking Accident?
