The Dangers of Osage Beach Truck Accidents with Big-Rigs

Regardless of where you are in Missouri, it is difficult to escape large trucks. Big-rigs are important to commerce within our state and around our country. They are an efficient way to move goods around, stock stores, and provide necessities to those who need them. However, that efficiency comes with a price, and that price is paid not just at the gas pump, but also with pain, suffering, and financial losses that occur from Missouri truck crashes.

Why Big Trucks Are Dangerous

Any vehicle can be dangerous. A negligent motorcyclist can cause an accident, for example, just as a negligent trucker can cause a crash. However, there are certain trends in large truck accidents that are important to know about if you, or a loved one, have been hurt in a big-rig crash. Specifically, large trucks:

  • Have blind spots. Truckers cannot see all of the vehicles around them.
  • Take longer to stop. If a vehicle stops short or pulls out in front of a truck, then a trucker may have a harder time stopping his vehicle.
  • May be driven by professional drivers who are tired. Fatigue is a common problem among commercial truck drivers.

Of course, large Osage Beach truck crashes can also occur for the reasons that any other accident happens, including distracted driving, speeding, and drunk driving.
