A semi truck is inherently unstable based on the high center of gravity of its design. An over-weighted truck only makes this situation worse. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Georgia Department of Motor Vehicle Safety closely regulate the commercial trucking industry, but accidents due to truck driver negligence and trucking equipment maintenance still occur.
Contributing factors in semi truck accidents
The following are a few contributing factors in semi truck accidents:
- Violations of restrictions on hours of driving, resulting in driver fatigue
- Overweight semi trucks and unbalanced loads
- Semi truck equipment maintenance
A fully loaded semi truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. A typical passenger vehicle weighs about 3,000 pounds. Because of the significant forces involved, fatal truck accidents sadly are not uncommon. If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi truck accident, this is the time to act.
