What Causes Truck Accidents?

Commercial truck drivers like those behind the wheels of semis and big rigs are supposed to have extensive industry training and a special commercial driver’s license (CDL) to make them experts at their job. If that’s the case, then why are there so many devastating truck accidents every year in Mississippi? Realistically, truck drivers are still human, so they are prone to making serious mistakes just like everyone else. The difference is that the mistakes they make while driving are practically guaranteed to create catastrophic consequences due to the massive sizes of their vehicles.

Mistakes that truck drivers can make while driving vary, such as:

  • Speeding to try to complete a delivery in less time because they are paid by the mile driven, not the hour worked.
  • Driving while exhausted due to driving for 10 hours or more, which is strangely legal under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.
  • Merging or changing lanes without checking blind spots, which are enormous on the average commercial truck.

Some truck accidents are also caused in part by the mistakes of parties other than the truck driver. For example, a third-party load crew that puts products and cargo inside the truck’s trailer can stack it incorrectly and make the entire trailer top-heavy. If the truck driver takes a sharp turn or has a hard-braking event, then the truck could tip over or jackknife into other lanes.
