Causes of Truck Accidents In Bowling Green
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 commercial 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. Contact our office today to discuss the details of your trucking accident case.
