Dallas, Texas (CaymanMama.com) — Dallas personal injury lawyer Amy Witherite says that Trucks, tractor trailers, 18 wheelers, semis, and other big rigs are the giants of the road, often taking up vast portions of the road with their sheer size and weight.

Mainly due to the vast difference in size between those trucks and other average vehicles on the road, the occupants of the other automobile involved in a truck wreck makes up for some 76 percent of the deaths that occur on the roads each year.

While some truckers abide by the laws, rules, and regulations set in place to make the roads safer to travel on, other truckers and trucking companies fail to follow those rules and put other drivers in the path of danger, causing truck accidents to occur at an alarming rate.

The Dallas trucking accident lawyers at the firm of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP wish to help the public be more aware of the dangers of trucking accidents by outlining the common causes of truck wrecks:

* Fatigued driver, either the truck driver or other vehicle driver
* Drugs or alcohol impairment
* Inexperienced driver
* Inadequate training
* Speeding or reckless driving
* Aggressive driving
* Tailgating
* Failure to yield the right of way
* Poorly maintained truck brakes
* Oversized or overloaded trucks
* Unsafe safety systems
* Lack of underride protection
