When you see large, commercial trucks near you on the road, you may start to feel uneasy.

Unfortunately, negligent truck drivers and pressure to meet deadlines can lead to catastrophic truck accidents.

Accidents involving large trucks and smaller vehicles are some of the most deadly accidents which take place on the road. At Cornell Law, our southeast Iowa truck accident attorney is committed to providing clients throughout Burlington, Fairfield, Washington, Ottumwa, and Mt. Pleasant with the most compassionate and dedicated representation.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

There are very strict federal laws in place which restrict how and when commercial trucks can drive. They are expected to follow these laws to the letter for their own safety and the safety of other drivers. Most truck accidents are caused by preventable circumstances, such as driver inattention, drunk driving, or even breaking traffic laws. However, there are other situations which must be taken into account when representing a trucking accident, such as whether the trucking company was pressuring the driver to break laws during their shift.

A few of the other causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Truck malfunction
  • Improper driver training
  • Overloaded cargo
