Home » Most Common Reasons For Large Truck Accidents In Phoenix

If you drive around Phoenix on a regular basis, you notice many large trucks on the road. While most drivers of these trucks follow the rules of the road and drive safely, others do anything but that. Along with drivers, many trucking companies also cut corners along the way, ultimately resulting in severe accidents that leave innocent victims with huge medical bills and lives that are forever changed. If you have been involved in an accident with a large truck, here are a few of the most common reasons why the accident likely occurred and how attorneys at Gary Phillips Accident Law can help.

Impaired Drivers
In many accidents with large trucks, it is determined that the truck driver was behind the wheel while intoxicated or high on various drugs. When this happens, drivers have greatly reduced hand-eye coordination and major lapses in judgment, both of which result in them crashing into nearby vehicles for no reason.

Driver Fatigue
If a truck driver is not impaired from alcohol or drugs, there is a good chance they have simply fallen asleep behind the wheel. Since tight deadlines often exist for drivers to make deliveries, many ignore state and federal laws requiring them to stop and rest after a certain amount of time. By doing so, they put other drivers on the road at tremendous risk.

Faulty Maintenance
Whether it is a trucking company or a truck driver who is an owner-operator of their own truck, there are many times when corners are cut regarding a truck’s maintenance. From worn-out tires that are not replaced and subsequently explode while the truck is riding down the road to faulty brakes that won’t let the truck stop before hitting a vehicle, these are examples of negligence and carelessness that always require drivers and companies to be held accountable for their actions.
