    How Speeding Can Cause Truck Accidents

    Speeding is a prevalent factor in truck accidents, contributing to a significant number of collisions on the roads each year. At Miller Personal Injury Attorneys, we understand the complexities involved in determining the causes of truck accidents, particularly when speeding is involved. Our law firm is committed to thoroughly investigating each case to uncover the factors that led to the accident to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions.

    Understanding the Impact of Speeding in Truck Accidents

    Speeding significantly increases the risk of accidents involving large commercial trucks. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles make them particularly dangerous when traveling at high speeds. Some key points to consider regarding the impact of speeding in truck accidents include:

    • Increased Stopping Distance: Trucks require more time and distance to come to a complete stop compared to passenger vehicles. When traveling at high speeds, the stopping distance is further extended, making it challenging for truck drivers to react to sudden changes in traffic conditions or obstacles on the road.
    • Reduced Maneuverability: Speeding reduces a truck driver’s ability to maneuver safely, especially when navigating curves, turns, or other challenging road conditions. This can increase the likelihood of losing control of the vehicle and causing a collision.
    • Greater Severity of Collisions: The force of impact in a truck accident is directly proportional to the speed at which the vehicle is traveling. As a result, collisions involving speeding trucks often result in more severe injuries and property damage compared to accidents at lower speeds.

    Our Approach to Investigating Truck Accidents Involving Speeding

    At Miller Personal Injury Attorneys, we take a comprehensive approach to investigating truck accidents to determine the role that speeding played in causing the collision. Our investigation includes:

    • Gathering Evidence: We collect and analyze all available evidence related to the accident, including police reports, witness statements, and data from the truck’s onboard recording devices (such as the black box).
    • Consulting Experts: We work closely with accident reconstruction experts, engineering experts, and other experts to reconstruct the events leading up to the accident and to determine the speeds at which the vehicles were traveling.
    • Examining Driver Records: We gather and review the truck driver’s driving records, including their driving history, hours of service logs, and any previous citations for speeding or other traffic violations.
    • Assessing Liability: Based on our findings, we assess liability and identify all potentially responsible parties, including the truck driver, trucking company, maintenance contractors, and others.
