Car, truck, and motorcycle crashes most frequently occur due to driver distraction or speed. That can be a result of people texting while driving or driving too fast for road conditions. Texting and driving is illegal in many states, yet the problem persists. Unfortunately, driver intoxication is also still a problem, even in an age when mobile apps allow people to get a safe ride almost anywhere at any time. Any of these situations can lead to a crash involving serious injuries. When it comes to texting and driving or intoxicated driving that leads to a crash, there is simply no excuse.
With commercial vehicles such as semi-trucks and box trucks, crashes often happen due to driver distraction, speed, and driver fatigue. Crashes can also occur due to vehicle maintenance problems with brakes and tires, or with improperly secured loads. Many-times these crashes involve violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) by the commercial driver or the motor-carrier who pushes their drivers to drive more than their legally allowed hours. Unfortunately, when a commercial vehicle is involved, due to the size and weight of the vehicles, the injuries can be far more serious.
