Des Moines Truck Accident Legal Help
Trucks such as commercial trucks, box trucks and large semi-trucks are driven in Iowa each day. Whether for mass transport or for local deliveries, trucks are important to Iowa's economy, especially in large cities like Des Moines.
The majority of truck drivers are professional, responsible, experienced and highly capable drivers. However, this does not apply to everyone and even the best of drivers can make a simple error which leads to catastrophic results.
Compared to other cars, semi-trucks are far more difficult to control, take longer to stop, and due to their size and weight they are capable of delivering devastating impacts.
Truck accidents can occur due to a number of reasons, and the most common causes include:
- oversized or unbalanced loads,
- inadequate rest,
- driver fatigue,
- cell-phone use,
- texting while driving, and
- the failure of tires or other equipment.
In addition, inexperienced or under qualified drivers can cause catastrophic accidents when it comes to operating semi-trucks and trucks.
