    KANSAS CITY, MO, March 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Often, the responsibility for causing a truck accident belongs to trucking companies that overwork and under-train their employees. Regardless of the level of responsibility held by employers, the personal responsibility of the driver cannot be ignored.

Weather, road conditions, and vehicular malfunction are just a few factors, aside from human error, that contribute to the amount of truck accidents occurring each year. Still, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), it is ten times more likely that the driver of the truck is responsible for causing the accident.

In addition to sleep deprivation from long hours on the road, sadly there have been instances where it was found that the driver who caused the truck accident had consumed alcohol or abused prescription medication. According to the FMCSA study mentioned above, 44% of all truck accidents caused by driver error are attributed to prescription or over the counter drug use, 23% to driving at unsafe speeds, and 18% to driver fatigue.

Truck accidents are most often more severe and cause greater injuries than other motor vehicle accidents, including head, neck and back injury, brain injury, scarring and disfigurement, paralysis, loss of limbs, and death. When dealing with such severe consequences, it is crucial that truck drivers and trucking companies are held accountable for the damages and injuries they cause and the lives they can abruptly alter or end by their mistakes.

It is not always simple to identify what is the main cause of a truck accident, which is why, when involved in one, it is critical that you find a professional and qualified personal injury attorney who has experience with truck accident litigation.
