Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents

Depending on the situation, the owner or manufacturer of the truck can be responsible for the accident. Specific part manufacturers can also be liable if a defect with a tire, axel, or other part resulted in the accident. In many instances, however, the truck driver is held liable for the accident.

Truck drivers can cause an 18-wheeler accident by:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Failing to follow signs
  • Speeding

Any accident involving a large commercial truck such as an 18 wheeler has a high likelihood of a serious, or even fatal, injury. Due to the size and weight of these vehicles, clients often suffer severe injuries such as a brain injury, spinal injury, paralysis, burn, and amputation.
