Causes of Orlando Truck Accidents Resulting in Catastrophic Injury
Every 5 minutes, an accident involving a large truck, kills or injures an innocent person, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Traffic Safety Facts (revised in May, 2014). Whether the tractor trailer accident is from the intentional or unintentional carelessness of the truck driver, or the disregard for safety and proper training from truck company owners, the resulting damage from collision, fire, under ride or override accidents change lives forever. Although many of the factors causing trucking accidents are the same as those causing car accidents, the trucking industry is susceptible to a combination of the following additional unsafe driver practices:
- Prescription drug use
- Unfamiliarity with the road
- Over-the-counter drug use
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Aggressive driving behavior, forcing passenger vehicles off the road
- Incorrect or unsecure load
- Losing sight of vehicles in “blind spots”
- Lack of sleep due to unreasonable deadlines
Tragedy affects every member of the family, not just those physically involved in the truck crash. We understand that.
