Common Factors Leading To Trucking Accidents
Truck drivers play an essential role in our economy, but also bear a tremendous responsibility to operate their vehicles safely and within the law. Trucking companies are regulated for good reason. Some of the most horrific crashes on Wisconsin roadways involve 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks. These accidents take a tremendous human toll, as you may have tragically discovered.

Establishing Driver Fatigue, Safety Shortcuts And Other Truck Accident Causes
Having delivered sizable recoveries for individuals and families harmed by accidents, we have gained extensive knowledge of how trucking companies operate and how insurers attempt to defend their own interests. Trucking accident causes that can be proven with the right investigation and resources include:
- Driver fatigue — often disguised by inaccurate log books and denied by the driver and trucking company
- A semi or delivery truck driver’s inattentive or intoxicated driving — or the employer’s failure to screen and properly train its drivers
- Known maintenance or safety problems with the truck
- Violations of federal and state trucking regulations, such as load restrictions and many safety requirements
