What Causes Truck Crashes?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration conducted a large study a few years ago, looking at 963 crashes that resulted in 249 fatalities and 1,654 injuries. The agency found that brake problems were a factor in 29% of accidents and traveling too fast for the conditions was a factor in 23%. These factors will often be combined in a single crash, and it can be complicated to untangle who is at fault. If the brakes were maintained by a different company than the truck operator, for example, then the two companies may be pointing their fingers at each other.

External factors can also cause truck crashes. The study found that roadway problems are a factor in 20% of crashes. This can lead to a situation where the driver of the truck avoids liability and perhaps a driver that was hit by a truck will need to pursue payment from their own insurance company. Most of the other common truck-crash factors can all be pinned on drivers, though. The leading driver-caused factors include being unfamiliar with the roadway (a factor in 22% of crashes), over-the-counter drug use (17%), inadequate surveillance (14%), fatigue (13%), the driver being under pressure to perform (10%), illegal maneuvers (9%), inattention (9%), and external distractions (8%). Accordingly, in most cases the truck driver and his or her insurance company is likely to be at least partially liable for a crash.

How is Fault Determined in a Truck Crash?

In most situations, the insurance companies for each driver in a crash will work out who is at fault. The Missouri Department of Insurance regulates insurance companies and can review whether the insurance companies make a complete investigation, but generally state agencies or law enforcement will not determine who is at fault. Instead, if the insurance companies refuse to pay for the damages that were wrongfully caused by their drivers then an injured party will have to go to court to get relief.

In most cases, a person who is injured in a truck crash will need to show the court that the truck driver was negligent. That simply means not acting the way a responsible truck driver should in a given situation. Negligence is often shown by evidence of breaking driving laws, such as speeding or running a red light. The federal government also has recently imposed strict hours-of-service regulations that requires drivers to get enough rest before they get on the road. A driver may be negligent if he or she ignores these rules and gets into a truck crash. In today’s modern age, a driver that looked away from the road to do something on his or her phone is almost certainly going to be liable for a crash. Phone data can now be matched up with accident timing fairly easily in order to establish that a driver was playing with his or her phone at the wrong time.
