4 Reasons Trucking Accidents Are More Prevalent During the Holiday Season 

The holiday season increases the risk of a truck accident due to the growing demands and stress required on truck drivers and companies.  Despite driving with a reasonable duty of care, there are four reasons why you may suffer a truck accident due to driver negligence: 

Truck Driver Fatigue

Driving long hours and pushing themselves to keep up with demanding holiday schedules can cause truck drivers to get inadequate rest on the job.  When truckers neglect their need for sleep, they can cause a fatal collision due to falling asleep behind the wheel.  Over 6,400 people die annually in accidents involving fatigued driving, according to the National Sleep Foundation.  Fatigued driving is dangerous and is similar to driving under the influence of alcohol.

Poor Driving Conditions

Unlike other times of the year, the holiday season is known for poor traffic conditions, especially in areas that experience heavy snow, ice, or fog during the winter.  Accidents are more likely to occur if special consideration and care are not taken when driving in these conditions.  Since semi-trucks and other heavy commercial vehicles are susceptible to maintenance issues and may cut corners during this time of year, it may cause deadly accidents.  


Since drivers may be in a rush to fulfill supply and delivery demands, speeding greatly contributes to accidents during the holiday season.  Speeding can cause accidents due to failing to react in time in cases of emergency or changes in traffic.  

Congested Roadways

During the holiday season, roadways are more congested than usual as everyone is trying to make it home for the holidays.  With the abundance of motorists traveling and increased delivery demands of truck drivers, accidents are more likely to occur as traffic increases.  

Monetary Compensation You May Recover in a Successful Truck Accident Claim 

If you have suffered injuries in a truck accident during the holiday season, you may recover compensatory damages depending on the details of your accident and the extent of your injuries.  

The following are economic and non-economic losses you may recover with the help of an experienced lawyer at Marsalisi Law: 

  • Medical expenses;

  • Disability;
  • Scarring or disfigurement;
  • Loss of future earning capacity;
  • Property damages;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Wrongful death.

A truck accident during the holiday season can be overwhelming and traumatic.  An experienced truck accident lawyer may help you conduct an extensive investigation into your accident to obtain evidence of negligence.  To fight for the complete compensation you deserve, we aggressively negotiate with insurance companies so you may focus on your recovery.
