Causes of Commercial Truck Accidents
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) there are more than half of a Million large trucks on the roadways. Every year, these trucks are involved in thousands of crashes that result in a fatality and more than 50,000 crashes that result in severe injuries.
Because the trucking industry is so uber-competitive, there is a lot of pressure on truckers, put on them by their bosses at the trucking companies, to get their loads over the roadways as fast and as cheaply as possible. Safety is sometimes overlooked while all eyes are on profits. Statistics reveal that driver negligence is a significant contributing factor with respect to 18-wheeler accidents.
The most typical types of truck driver negligence we have seen include:
- Driver Fatigue
- Driver Distraction
- Drug and Alcohol Use When Operating
- Failure to Brake Properly
- Driving Left of the Center of the Lane
Other accidents involve defects or maintenance problems such as badly worn brakes or tires. We have the ability to contact the most reputable accident reconstructionists that have the requisite skill and experience to help determine the root cause of the crash.
Injuries From Truck Crashes
The injuries that on sustains from a truck accident can be life altering. Many truck accident victims either do not survive or never return to their previous level of functioning. In such circumstances, the injuries or death usually could have been prevented had the truck driver exercised more care when traveling over and upon the roadway.
Typical Types of Trucks Involved in Accidents
Just about every truck on the road is slightly different and these differences can be important when evaluating a truck accident case. The types of trucks that are usually involved in accidents include tractor-trailers, hazardous waste transport tanker trucks, dump trucks, tow-trucks, smaller delivery trucks, sometimes referred to as box trucks, and commercial pickup-trucks.
Depending on the type of truck, there make be different requirements for retrieving data from the truck's electronic data recorder, commonly known as the “Black Box.”
Your Challenges Following a Truck Accident

How to Win Your Truck Accident Case
In order to win a truck accident case, a victim must prove two things:
- That the driver (or company involved with the truck) was negligent; and
- That the victim was injured (or killed) as a result of the negligence.
The term “negligent” is a relatively general term that can apply quite broadly. A truck driver may be negligent if they were speeding, traveling too fast given all the surrounding circumstances or violating the rules of the road.

5 Star Google Review
I have come to know Michael Redenburg from a legal matter. He is always professional and caring for his clients. No matter your level of worry, he comes through and put your mind at ease. He has a very sensitive side to him. I recalled when my dad passed from Covid and funeral homes were all booked. Mr. Redenburg put everything aside when I was ready to give it all up and assisted in locating a funeral home for my family. I will never forget that gesture of kindness.
If you are looking for an attorney that cares just about his case, and not you as a client, then look for that attorney elsewhere because Mr. Redenburg is different in that area. He cares and talks to you as a family member.
