Truck accidents can be caused by a number of reasons. One of the most prominent reasons is truck driver fatigue. Employers can pressure drivers to drive more miles than allotted in a day's span in order to make more miles and get loads delivered more quickly. When a driver is fatigued, the following can be affected:

  • Ability to gauge proper braking distance
  • Response time
  • Vision
