Know what caused the truck accident that left you injured

For anyone in the Chicago area who is involved in a serious car accident, the first question is usually the same for everyone: What happened? The vast majority of motor vehicle accidents happen without a moment's notice, and these accidents - particularly if they involve large vehicles like semi-trucks - can cause a massive amount of damage and serious injuries for those involved. When Chicago area residents are involved in a truck accident, they need to know what caused the accident in the first place.

Reckless driving of any type could cause a serious truck accident. Many truck drivers feel pressured to make their deliveries on time - or ahead of schedule. The result? They speed. A semi-truck going the speed limit is dangerous enough, but one that is traveling at an excessive speed can seem like an unstoppable freight train, without the benefit of tracks to keep in on course. Many truck accidents are caused every year due to speeding truck drivers.

And, of course, distracted driving is as big a problem on America's roads as it has ever been. Truck drivers are not immune to this potentially deadly conduct. Reaching for a cellphone or another electronic device is a temptation many people simply cannot avoid behind the wheel, it seems. When a truck driver takes his eyes of the road for even a few seconds, many lives could be at risk.
