Jacksonville Truck Accident Attorneys
Seeking Justice & Fighting for Compensation
Streets and highways are often crowded with large and small automobiles, including cars and trucks. Truck accidents occur far too frequently in our modern society and are one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accident fatalities. This is a fact that is easy to understand when you consider that commercial trucks can weigh around 70,000 pounds and the average passenger car weighs around 3,000 pounds.
Trucking accidents often occur due to:
- Distracted driving
- Trucks driving too close to ditches
- Riding onto soft shoulders
- Driving with uneven loads
- Traveling over uneven ground
- Poor brakes or tires
- Non-working signals
- Downhill slopes
- Truck overloads
- Driver fatigue or intoxication
However, not all trucking accidents occur though through driver negligence or truck malfunctions. Maintaining the control of a commercial truck can be very difficult under poor road or weather conditions, and during the transportation of livestock or liquids. Trucks carrying livestock can inadvertently shift weight when turning corners or when the truck has to make a sudden turn. Trucks carrying liquids have to worry about the liquids sloshing back and forth if no baffles are installed in the tank.
