Why Do Commercial Truck Accidents Continue to Occur in Simpsonville, South Carolina?
According to the South Carolina Traffic Collision Fact Book, fatal traffic collisions between commercial vehicles and non-commercial vehicles contributed to 38.6% of the total traffic collisions and 12.2% of total fatal traffic collisions throughout the state last year.
In Simpsonville, commercial truck traffic, including semi-trucks and other large vehicles, is not uncommon. South Carolina Highway 14 runs through the center of Simpsonville as Main Street, and Interstate 385 passes through Simpsonville west of the city center and leads northwest to the center of Greenville and southeast to Interstate 26 making the city’s nearly ten square miles a busy place for large truck traffic.
Common reasons semi-truck and other commercial vehicle collisions continue to occur in Simpsonville can include negligence on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer or maintenance crew, cargo loaders, or a combination of each.
Truck drivers are often liable for truck accidents in Simpsonville when they are speeding, driving impaired, fatigued, distracted, or beyond the hours of service guidelines.
