What are the Most Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Every year, commercial truck accidents cause hundreds of deaths in Missouri, not to mention more than 3,000 injuries. Because of their weight and size, large trucks cannot stop, turn, or slow down like smaller vehicles. When a commercial truck collides with a passenger vehicle at high speeds, the results are often catastrophic.

The top causes of 18-wheeler accidents includes:

    How to Prove Liability in a Missouri Truck Accident

    Proving that you are not responsible for a trucking accident can be challenging, especially if you do not have all possible information about the wreck. Indeed, in many commercial truck wrecks, the trucking company has access to four key pieces of evidence or information that the injured motorist does not. Not openly sharing those sources of information is in the interest of the trucking company. Getting them to share is part of trucking accident claims 101.

    Our attorneys can help you obtain the following evidence for your case:

    • Electronic on-board recorder (EOBR): Many commercial trucks of today have electronic on-board recorders, similar to an airplane. Advanced EOBR models can track a truck’s speed at the time of a crash. Most models will note whether or not the truck driver has been taking appropriate breaks to prevent exhaustion. In either situation, the data on the EOBR can be incredibly useful to show the motorist’s liability should be reduced or eliminated entirely.
    • Trucker’s driving history: The parent trucking company could be at fault if its internal employee records show their truck driver has a history of poor driving and crashes. In some cases, it might even be revealed that the trucker has run into problems with the law for intoxicated driving. You should get a copy of the trucker’s driving history so you can look for any indicators of recklessness, both of the driver and the company.
    • Truck maintenance logs: Every commercial truck requires extensive maintenance to be safe for the roads, or else a mechanical defect could cause an abrupt loss of control and an accident. Trucking companies are certain to have truck maintenance logs stored away that can show if maintenance has been performed appropriately and at responsible intervals. If no such records exist, it can reasonably be assumed that no maintenance has been performed lately.
    • Dash cam footage of the wreck and of the truck driver at the time of the wreck.
