Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

With so much commuter and trucking traffic, truck accidents are all too common in the Bay Area. Because of the weight and size of most commercial trucks, trucking accidents have the potential to be some of the most serious of motor vehicle accidents. In the aftermath of a truck accident, it is essential to determine both the underlying cause of the collision as well as who is liable for the damages and injuries associated with the accident.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver negligence or driver recklessness
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Improper or inadequate driver training
  • Faulty vehicle parts or machinery associated with the truck
  • Improper or inadequate maintenance of the vehicle or associated equipment
  • Negligence on the part of the trucking company

In California, there are laws and regulations that dictate the operation of commercial vehicles and trucks, including laws associated with special licensing, vehicle weight, oversized loads, and how many hours a driver may log. Additionally, some cities, like Berkeley, have their own rules and regulations dictating the operation of trucks and commercial vehicles.
