Truck Accidents Can Involve Lots Of Different Types Of Vehicles
One of the most confusing aspects of a commercial truck accident is how to define a commercial truck. The fact is that a commercial truck – in some cases – can be a city bus, a fire engine, a UPS delivery van or, yes, a large tractor-trailer. But that’s only the beginning of the confusion.

What Causes A Truck Accident?
While truck accidents can come in a variety of ways, some of the most common ones – those that cause the most serious injuries – are with tractor-trailers on the highway. The reasons for crashes include:
- Driver issues: Truck driving can come with difficulties like distractions, fatigue and lack of training, making it a tough job. These difficulties can lead to many accidents.
- Vehicle issues: How the company filled the truck’s cargo compartment and how well it maintained the vehicle are massive contributing factors to a crash.
- Scheduling issues: Trucking is about profit margins and shorter, faster, aggressive delivery schedules, which can force drivers to take chances they don’t want to take.
- External issues: Weather and road conditions massively impact how well a truck performs in high-pressure situations.
The reasons for a truck accident don’t matter. What does matter is that you have injuries that deserve compensation. The trucking company should help you, but often, it won’t. Attorney Hadeed will fight to get you what you deserve.
