Know the many causes of a truck accident

Sharing the road with trucks is part of life. No matter where you go, you know these big rigs will be in close proximity.

While there's nothing wrong with sharing the road, you need to keep one thing in mind: Some truck drivers don't care about what's going on around them. As a result, their actions increase the likelihood of causing an accident.

When it comes to truck accidents, it's a good idea to know why these happen. This way, you can make decisions on the road to help you avoid trouble. Consider the following:

-- Trucker negligence. An example of this would be a trucker who remains behind the wheel for too long, thus leading to drowsy driving.

-- Truck company negligence. An example of this would be a company that takes shortcuts when training new drivers.

-- Truck maintenance. As you may know, trucks require quite a bit of maintenance. In the event that this is overlooked time and time again, it can eventually lead to an accident.

If you're driving a passenger vehicle and are involved in an accident with a truck, it goes without saying that you're at a disadvantage. The size difference alone puts you in a bad spot.

Being injured in a truck accident is serious. If you find yourself in this position, don't hesitate to receive medical attention. From there, you can learn more about your legal rights.
