Many different things can cause a truck accident, from distracted driving to drunk driving. Another common causeis unsecure cargo. Trucking companies and truck drivers are required to adhere to federal trucking regulations when it comes to loading a commercial truck. The truck cannot weigh more than 40 tons (80,000 pounds) and the cargo must not be able to tip, slide, or slosh in any way that may cause a truck rollover, jackknife accident, or other kind of truck accident. Baffles must be placed in tanker trucks to prevent excessive sloshing of liquid, therefore preventing the truck from tipping over. Other types of goods must be packed tightly or secured so that they cannot fall into the road and hit a following vehicle.
