Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Within the state of Kansas, trucking accident lawsuits can be very complex. Large commercial truck companies and other parties get involved in the case, including the truck driver, owner, the trucking company and the trucking contractor. Add to this the conflicting interests of multiple insurance companies that are involved, the potential for equipment malfunctions, overloading, brake and tire maintenance failures and it becomes obvious why consulting experienced Kansas trucking accident lawyers is a necessity. In most cases, a complete reconstruction of the accident must be conducted in order to determine all of the factors and responsible parties involved. The law firm of Knox, Johnson, Rockwell and Babbitt is experienced in the litigation of Kansas truck accidents - and we are ready to handle matters on your behalf.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

There can be many contributing factors to why a truck accident occurs in the first place. Trucking accidents are usually caused by a combination of a truck's unique characteristics and performance capabilities. Oversized trucks have special limitations associated with acceleration, braking, visibility and driving conditions. Unfortunately, a car occupant's ignorance or neglect of these limitations can spell disaster.

Other Causes Of Trucking Accidents:

  1. Overloaded freight trucking
  2. Oversized trucks - tractor trailers
    Big rigs, 18 wheelers and semi trucks.
  3. Extreme interstate driving conditions
  4. Chronic fatigue in truck drivers due to long haul trucking
  5. Jackknife accidents
  6. Speeding truckers
  7. Truck driver drug or alcohol abuse / Driving under the influence
  8. Underride accidents caused by truck bumpers that are too high or in disrepair


Although the shipping and trucking industry is very important to our economy, these oversized trucks are among the deadliest of weapons in the hands of truck drivers who drive under the influence.
