WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF SEMI-TRUCK CRASHES IN FOUR CORNERS, FLORIDA?
Semi-trucks are difficult to maneuver in traffic. They have a high center of gravity and are prone to rolling over. They need to slow down on ramps and curves, take more time to accelerate going uphill, may quickly pick up speed going downhill and need more time to brake. Because of their size, they can even pull smaller vehicles underneath them.
Semi-truck drivers are responsible for meeting the challenges of driving the semi safely and using reasonable care to drive their trucks. Unfortunately, however, truck driver negligence causes most of the accidents that involve semi-trucks.
Common types of semi-truck driver negligence that cause or contribute to accidents include speeding, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while fatigued, not adjusting driving for weather or road conditions, being distracted by cell phones or other devices, and not properly loading their trucks.
Other people and companies may also be negligent and share in the blame for the accident. These may include the semi-truck’s owner, the truck’s manufacturer, the manufacturers of the truck’s parts, the people or companies responsible for repairing and maintaining the truck and its parts, the owner of the cargo, and those responsible for truck inspections.
