In an effort to further understand the reason for the high number of tractor-trailer accidents, The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) completed a study known as The Large Truck Crash Causation Study (LTCCS). Released in 2006 and updated in 2007, the report concluded that the following were the three main events that caused most truck crashes:

  1. Running out of the travel lane, either into another lane or off the road (32%).
  2. Vehicle loss of control due to speeding, cargo shift, vehicle systems failure, poor road conditions, or other reasons (29%).
  3. Rear-end collision with another vehicle in the truck’s travel lane (22%).

Approximately one-third of multi-vehicle accidents where a motorcycle is involved happen due to a motorist turning into the path of the motorcycle. Another common factor that contributes to a motorcycle crash is riders who are inexperienced and do not know the limitations of the motorcycle. These factors, among others, can result in numerous legal issues, particularly in the many states where motorcycle laws are different from automobile laws. It’s therefore important to contact our motorcycle injury lawyers as soon as you can.
