Since 2008, more than 100,000 people have been injured, many seriously, after an accident with a truck or big-rig.
In Kentucky, there are a number of situations or reasons why a truck could cause an accident. Here are a number of the more common reasons I’ve seen.
- Truck Driver Fatigue
- Truck Driver Negligence
- Drug Use
- Semi Truck Equipment Failures
- Failure to brake or unexpected breaking
- Reckless driving or speeding
- Driving under the influence (DUI)/drunk driving
- Weather and road conditions
- Load shifts
- Improper road/shoulder pull-overs
If you, or members of your family, were injured in an accident involving a truck or semi, and it appears the truck was the reason why, please make sure you speak with a qualified attorney.
