Experienced Oklahoma Attorneys Here To Help You Get Justice After Your Car Accident Involving A Commercial Truck
Commercial truck and tractor-trailer drivers, known as CDL drivers, often spend long hours behind the wheel covering vast distances.
In these situations, 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 a commercial driver can drive and requires certain mandatory breaks, drivers and their employers do not always observe those rules. As such, accidents occur.
Some common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Unsecured cargo
- Speeding or violating traffic rules
- Inattentive or distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence
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.
Commercial Truck Accidents Are More Likely To Result In Death
Commercial truck accidents generally involve collisions with smaller passenger vehicles. Rear-end collisions, sideswipes and head-on collisions often occur on highways all across the state of Oklahoma.
Unfortunately, given the sheer size and weight of trucks, accidents involving trucks, semi trucks or 18-wheelers often result in serious catastrophic injuries or loss of life.
