There are many causes of truck accidents

As you make your way down the highway, you know that you will be in close proximity to trucks from time to time. While there is nothing wrong with this, as everyone needs to share the road, a single mistake can lead to a serious disaster.

Most truckers do whatever it takes to remain safe. They don't want to cause an accident, as they realize how much damage this can cause. Unfortunately, this doesn't hold true for all truck drivers. There will always be some who drive recklessly and hope to get away with it.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

-- Fatigued driving

-- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

-- Distracted driving, such as texting or speaking on a cellphone

-- Unsecured loads

-- Oversized loads

-- Load shift

-- Failure to check blind spots before making a lane charge

-- Changing lanes without signaling

-- Speeding

If you're involved in a truck accident, there's a good chance that you'll be seriously injured. The reason is simple: Your vehicle is much smaller than the truck, meaning that you're at a safety disadvantage.

In addition to receiving medical treatment, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights. This means knowing the laws in your state, as well as the process that insurance companies will attempt to follow.
