Professional Drivers Can Make Mistakes, Too

It's no secret that truck drivers are held to a higher standard than casual motorists. Even with all of the additional training, commercial drivers can still cause violent collisions. The factors are numerous, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Improper merge or lane change
  • Defective warning lights or safety equipment
  • Tire blowout
  • Failure to perform required safety checks
  • Unbalanced load

One of the most dangerous and pervasive factors in truck driving accidents is distracted driving. These long-haul drivers are often distracted by talking on a cellphone, texting, eating, personal grooming or even reading. Drivers who allow themselves to be distracted automatically become a danger to other vehicles.

It is likely that a trucking company will have their lawyers and insurance adjusters involved mere moments after a truck accident. You need the same tenacity on your side. Call or email us to discuss your case with a skilled lawyer.
