Truck Driver Negligence
Truck drivers are professional drivers who must obtain commercial driver’s licenses and who are, as a result, held to more restrictive rules and regulations. When truck drivers are derelict in their adherence to the safety rules of the road, life-threatening accidents can be the result, and this negligence can take wide-ranging forms, including:
- Distractions – A truck driver who is distracted by anything other than safely traveling over the road ahead is far more likely to cause a deadly truck accident.
- Impairment by substances – Truck drivers maneuver immensely heavy machines, and the law has absolutely no tolerance for truckers who do so with alcohol and/or drugs in their systems.
- Fatigue – Drowsy driving is a dangerous practice, and when the driver involved is a truck driver, the danger increases precipitously.
- Speeding – Speed plays a primary role in far too many truck accidents, and the greater the speed, the more likely the accident is to be deadly.
