Truck accidents can be devastating.
Semi-truck accidents happen frequently, with more than 7,000 crashes occurring in Wisconsin annually. Between summer construction and poor winter road conditions, these collisions can result in significant damages and trauma. Damages are usually far worse than a standard automobile accident due to the sheer size and weight of a semi-truck. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Improper truck or trailer maintenance
- Driver inexperience
- Improper loading
- Driving under the influence or while intoxicated
- Excessive speed
- Aggressive, reckless or negligent driving
