Common Truck Accident Causes

Many South Carolina truck accidents are caused by the same reasons as auto accidents: distraction, speeding, falling asleep while driving or vehicle malfunction. Truck drivers are susceptible to the same mistakes and negligence that auto drivers are.

There are accidents that are specific to tractor and commercial trucks including:

  • Jackknife
  • Rollovers
  • Lost loads
  • Dangerous turns
  • Merging accidents

No driver plans to get in an accident when they head out on the road, but truck wrecks happen nonetheless. Changing lanes, sudden braking in traffic and changing weather conditions may not seem daunting for drivers of standard vehicles, but for trucks, they can prove treacherous. Add to this the increased chances of blowouts, vehicle malfunction due to high miles, or maintenance neglect on the road, and truck or tractor trailer accidents become even more tricky. Because of the complexity of truck accident cases, it is best to discuss your case with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Murrells Inlet.
