Does Ehline Have Experience In Discovering Tow Truck Crash Mechanism of Injury?

How Do Most Tow Truck Accidents Occur?

Tow trucks and their drivers can cause accidents or collisions in several different ways. And the crash does not always involve another vehicle.

For example:

  • Tow truck wrecks can be from driver error or negligence. Sometimes they lead to wrongful death.
  • Also, the vehicle the tow truck is hauling can come loose. So this loose, unwieldy towing vehicle is now an unmanned weapon. It can be deadly to motorists, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians as it flies off the hitch into oncoming traffic. When a vehicle comes loose at high speed, you might be able to swerve out of its way. But then you could get in a collision with other motorists due to your evasive action.
  • An aggressive tow truck driver who travels over the speed limit also poses an extreme danger. And this danger is not confined to the drivers around them.
  • At any rate, the brake lights on these large trucks are not always visible. And if the emergency warning lights on the towed vehicle are not visible, it can cause a rear-end accident. If the tow rig suddenly stops or slows down, the following driver has no warning. At this point, there is a rear-ender. So now issues of who is at fault come into play.
  • Improper maintenance can make the truck a weapon on the roadway. Regrettably, this can mean a multi-ton truck was hauling a vehicle weighing tons colliding with numerous objects. And this could be from faulty brakes, tires or mechanical failure.
