Causes of Truck Accidents In Kentucky
The state of Kentucky has long been involved in the shipping and cargo
industries, and commercial trucks often pass through Bowling Green and
the surrounding communities. Because commerical trucks and trailers pose
a greater danger on the road, drivers and trucking companies are required
to follow strict guidelines designed to prevent these types of accidents.
While some crashes truly are unavoidable, many others are the consequence
of negligent or reckless driving on the part of drivers and trucking companies alike.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Alcohol or drug use (both prescription and illicit)
- Driver fatigue
Driver distractions, such as cell phone use
- Driver’s failure to check surroundings
- Improper loading, or securing of a load
- Illegal deadlines or schedules
Many times, the fault for a truck accident goes beyond the driver and lies
with the trucking company. These corporates are required to monitor the
drivers' qualifications, vehicle maintenance, and provide minimum
insurance coverage. Failure on part of a company to uphold Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations means our firm can hold
the driver and their trucking corporation responsible for your injury.
