Driver errors due to lack of training, lack of sleep or unsafe operation are among the most common causes of truck accidents. Driver fatigue is one of the most unfortunate and obvious causes of truck collisions. Truck mechanics, truck makers and part manufacturers can be held responsible for accidents that result from an oversight or unsafe practice. Oversized and overweight vehicles incur more risks on the road than vehicles that abide by safety regulations. Trucking company owners may be found to have played a part in the unsafe operation of their vehicles. Owners who fail to properly supervise and regulate the operation of a trucking business can be heavily fined and forced to financially compensate victims’ families.
