Accounting for eight percent of all road fatalities, trucking accidents are often caused by negligent commercial drivers who lack proper training, suffer from fatigue, speed, text, or drive while intoxicated with alcohol or drugs – all of which put the safety of others at risk. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, truckers on the road for more than eight hours are twice as likely to be in a trucking accident. Another recent study of large truck crashes found that 55% had a mechanical violation and 36% of the violations involved defective brakes. It should come as no surprise that a fatigued trucker operating a vehicle with defective brakes may cause a fatal collision.
