Negligent Truck Drivers Cause Dangerous Michigan Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks are larger than most other cars on the road, which explains why 77 percent of those injured and 86 percent of those killed in Michigan truck collisions are the drivers or passengers of smaller vehicles.

With one out of every eight motor vehicle deaths involving semi-trucks, these large vehicles pose an enormous threat to all drivers and passengers on the road. Reckless or careless semi-truck operators are most often at fault for these dangerous and tragic Michigan truck accidents.

Because of the sheer size and power of these trucks, it is absolutely crucial that truck drivers use extreme caution to protect themselves and other drivers and passengers on the roads. However, if a driver is negligent, there can be serious consequences. Some of the common causes of Michigan truck wrecks include:

  • Bad weather
  • Reckless driving
  • Careless driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Failure to follow traffic laws
  • Impaired driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Defective trucks
  • Unsecured loads
