The most common type of tractor trailer accident is when the tractor trailer fails to stop and the tractor trailer rear ends another vehicle that may have slowed or stopped. These accidents have a number of causes including:
- The tractor trailer truck driver may have fallen asleep or have been drowsy, in which case the tractor trailer carrier may be liable if they did not follow regulations involving sleep
- The tractor trailer may have been overweight, in which case the tractor trailer carrier or whatever loader may be liable
- The tractor trailer’s brakes may have been negligently maintained
- The tractor trailer may have been speeding
