Trucking is a big business, and trucking accidents happen way more than they have to in this country. Huntsville, Alabama trucking lawyer Randy Ferguson understands that highway safety is an issue of great concern to most Alabamians. Semi truck and eighteen wheeler accidents present unique issues not necessarily associated with a typical motor vehicle accident. Birmingham, Cullman, Decatur and Huntsville, Alabama all have interstates that carry thousands of eighteen wheelers a day down their roads. Some of the busiest interstates in this country run through Atlanta, Georgia, Nashville, Tennessee, and Birmingham, Alabama. When a tractor trailer truck is involved in a accident, there is a greater likelihood of serious injuries or deaths due to size disparities between trucks and cars and the basic laws of physics.
Huntsville Truck Accident Information
Every year, hundreds of Alabama residents along with thousands of Americans are injured or lose their lives in accidents involving tractor-trailers, semis, 18-wheelers, big rigs and other large commercial vehicles. For the past 30 years, fatigued driving has been, and will continue to be, the number one safety issue in the commercial motor vehicle industry. A typical fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3000 pounds. Because of this size disparity, and due to the basic laws of physics, any trucking collision between a commercial truck and another vehicle is likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries. While statistics show that truck drivers are generally much more careful on the road than automobile drivers, and thankfully the incidence of fatal crashes involving trucks and other large vehicles has declined in recent years, large truck crashes still accounted for 5350 fatalities and 133,000 injuries in 2001.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are commonly caused by:
- distracted truck truckers
- intoxicated truck drivers
- sleep-deprived truckers
- overloaded or unsafe trucks
- rear-end collisions
