18 Common Causes of Wheeler Accidents

In thirty years of handling trucking cases, we see a clear and present danger on our roadways. Routinely, tractor-trailers carry dangerous loads, accidents waiting to happen. Most are clearly avoidable. Such was the case when we represented a family whose son died and the father's leg was amputated due to the negligence of three defendants who could have avoided the accident with simple testing and education.

Unfortunately, despite their potential to cause great harm to other motorists, there are a variety of unsafe practices that can lead to and cause trucking accidents in Illinois or throughout the United States, including:

Sleep deprived truck drivers

Truck drivers driving under the influence

Overloaded or mishandled cargo

Rear end accidents

Accidents at intersections

Left-hand turn collision

collisions

Jackknifes

Trucking rollover

Driving too fast for bad road conditions

Poor maintenance on the vehicle

These experiences have helped us recover millions of dollars in commercial vehicle accident and collision settlements for our clients. Legislation as nearly as possible by written regulations, and lawsuits to punish those who do not take due care.
