Frequently Asked Questions

Causes of Truck Accidents

"What causes Atlanta truck crashes? And, what should I do if I was in a truck accident?"

The five most common causes of Atlanta truck accidents:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving due to texting or using the onboard computer
  • Truck driver error or negligence such as speeding or following too closely
  • Mechanical failures due to improper inspection
  • Improper loading/securing of loads

If one of these situations occurs and a truck causes an accident that involves you and your vehicle, the chances are high for you to be the more injured party. The truck driver has the heavier weight and larger size of the truck on his/her side. Figuring out what to do after you’ve been in an accident and who to hire can become very confusing.

A tractor trailer crash involves more parties than a normal car crash. Trucking insurance companies, truck owner(s), companies who load the truck’s cargo, etc. can all be pulled into one accident case. So, as an accident victim, you need to have someone on your side.
