Truck Accidents in Fairfield

Fairfield is seated almost directly between San Francisco and Sacramento, and with Highway 80 running through, the city sees a ton of traffic, including commercial trucks carrying goods. Carrying truckers south, toward Walnut Creek, is Interstate 680, which is another place where heavy traffic is found. And, when there is heavy traffic, you can rest assured there will be truck accidents.

Top Causes of Big Rig Crashes

While trucking wrecks are considered motor vehicle collisions, they usually are not accidents. Crashes involving large commercial trucks are often caused by truck driver negligence. Some common types of unsafe driving behaviors by truckers include: 

  • Inadequate training about safety concerns, driving technique, or defensive driving.
  • Compensation systems that encourage truckers to drive faster.
  • Companies requiring truck drivers to work hours of consecutive driving that are not normally advisable.
  • Unrealistic schedules and expectations of trucking companies.

Sometimes, the load is not loaded onto the truck accurately, causing the weight of the goods to be lopsided. This can cause an accident if the truckers take a turn faster than they should. Other times, there are vehicle malfunctions that occur in trucks that are not inspected on a regular basis that cause accidents, as well.
