  • Failure of trucking companies to meet state and federal regulations
  • Failure to properly equip the trucks
  • Faulty or defective brakes, headlamps, tires, steering, and other parts
  • Inadequate truck maintenance or failure to perform scheduled maintenance checks
  • Employer negligence: insufficient driver training, bad hiring practices, failure to supervise
  • Failure to do proper background checks on truck drivers
  • Careless or erratic driving
  • Failure to acknowledge street lights or signage
  • Speeding
  • Tired or fatigued drivers
  • Failure to respect driver hour limits as set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving in bad weather
  • Overloaded cargo/improperly loaded cargo
