Smyrna Trucking Accident Attorney

About Commercial Truck Accidents

Among the most severe types of motor vehicle accident is the trucking accident. Commercial trucks are extremely large in size which automatically puts those involved in crashes with them at greater risk for sustaining serious injury. Because these trucks are so large and they are part of the shipping industry, there are many regulations that drivers and companies alike have to adhere to in order to avoid these types of accidents. Unfortunately, because of strict deadlines and lapses in enforcing regulations, trucks often cause serious accidents on Georgia's roads and highways.

One major cause of trucking accidents is driver fatigue. Like it was stated earlier, truck drivers are under the pressure of delivering their cargo on deadlines. Even though there are mandated resting hours, many drivers do not take them and risk falling asleep at the wheel. License fraud is also a bit of an epidemic in the trucking industry. Those who are under-qualified for driving commercial trucks obtain licenses illegally, putting thousands of inexperienced drivers on the road. Lack of proper maintenance is another way that trucks can cause serious traffic collisions.
