The Dangers of Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks are significantly larger and heavier than passenger cars. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds or more, while the average passenger car weighs around 4,000 pounds. This stark difference in size and weight can result in a much greater force of impact during a collision.

The sheer mass of trucks means they have more inertia and momentum. This makes it harder to change direction or stop suddenly, which can contribute to the severity of accidents.

Lastly, trucks have large blind spots or "no-zones" around them where other vehicles become difficult to see. This increases the risk of collisions when smaller vehicles are in these blind spots and the truck driver may not be aware of their presence.

The following are the common types of truck accidents:

  • Rear-End Collisions: Trucks require more time to stop, so they can easily collide with a slower or stopped vehicle in front of them.
  • Jackknife Accidents: This occurs when a truck's trailer swings out to the side, resembling the angle of a folding pocket knife. It can happen due to sudden braking or skidding.
  • Rollover Accidents: Trucks are more prone to tipping over, especially during sharp turns or on uneven roads.
  • Underride Collisions: These occur when a smaller vehicle becomes trapped under the rear or side of a truck, often resulting in severe damage to the smaller vehicle and its occupants.
  • Cargo Spills and Hazardous Materials Incidents: Accidents involving trucks carrying hazardous materials can lead to environmental hazards and additional dangers for first responders and nearby residents.
  • Wide Turn Accidents: Trucks require more space to make wide turns, and they can collide with vehicles that attempt to pass or maneuver alongside them during turns.
  • Blind Spot Collisions: Smaller vehicles can end up in a truck's blind spots, leading to accidents when the truck changes lanes or makes turns.
  • Tire Blowouts: Tire blowouts on trucks can cause the driver to lose control, potentially resulting in a collision.

Who is Liable for Causing a Truck Accident?

Liability in a truck accident can involve various parties, depending on the circumstances of the accident and the factors that contributed to it. Determining liability is a complex process that may require investigation, legal expertise, and an understanding of relevant regulations. 

Here are some parties that can potentially be held liable in a truck accident:

  • Truck Driver: The truck driver is often the first party considered for liability. If the driver was negligent, such as driving under the influence, speeding, texting while driving, or driving while fatigued, they may be held responsible for the accident.
  • Trucking Company: The company that employs the truck driver can be held liable if their policies, practices, or negligence contributed to the accident. For example, if the company encouraged unrealistic delivery schedules that led to driver fatigue or if they failed to properly maintain the truck, they could share liability.
  • Truck Owner: Sometimes, the truck driver and the truck owner are not the same entity. If the truck owner failed to maintain the vehicle properly or provided a truck with known mechanical issues, they might be held liable.
  • Cargo Loaders: Those responsible for loading and securing the cargo onto the truck can be held liable if an accident occurs due to improperly loaded or secured cargo. Shifting cargo can lead to accidents like rollovers or spills.
  • Manufacturers: If a defective truck part or component (such as brakes, tires, or steering) contributed to the accident, the manufacturer of that part could be held liable through a product liability claim.
  • Maintenance Contractors: If a third-party company was responsible for maintaining the truck and their negligence in maintenance or repairs caused the accident, they may share liability.
  • Government Entities: Poorly maintained roads, inadequate signage, or road hazards can contribute to accidents. In some cases, government entities responsible for road maintenance might share liability.
  • Other Drivers: Other drivers on the road who acted negligently and contributed to the accident may also be held liable. For example, if a passenger car swerves suddenly in front of a truck, causing an accident, that driver could share liability.
  • Third Parties: Sometimes, factors beyond the control of drivers or trucking companies, such as extreme weather conditions or road construction, can contribute to accidents. Liability might extend to third parties responsible for these conditions if they were negligent.
  • Insurance Companies: In some cases, insurance companies might be held liable if they act in bad faith by denying legitimate claims or not providing adequate coverage.
