Truck Accidents

Truck drivers often spend long hours behind the wheel covering vast distances. It is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain optimal levels of concentration over such a long period of time. Although complex federal regulations limit the number of hours for truck drivers' shifts and impose mandatory breaks, drivers and their employers do not always observe those rules.

Truck accidents generally involve collisions with other vehicles, usually passenger cars. Rear-end collisions, sideswipes and head-on collisions when the truck drifts left of center are far too common on highways throughout Oklahoma. Unfortunately, given the sheer size and weight of trucks, accidents involving trucks, semitrucks or 18-wheelers often result in loss of life.

Any number of factors can contribute to truck accidents. Some common examples include:

Many accidents take place in construction zones, where traffic may be forced to slow down or navigate narrow turns with little warning. Trucks entering these zones at high speeds may not be able to slow down in time, leading to rear-end collisions and pileups.
