Jackson Truck Accident Attorney
Trucks are everywhere, as they deliver the consumer goods we need and want, and truck accidents are easily the most destructive accidents on our roadways. At the core of most truck accidents is truck driver negligence, which can be exacerbated by the demands of overzealous trucking companies. If a truck driver’s negligence leaves you injured, you need a dedicated Jackson truck accident lawyer in your corner.
Truck Drivers Are Professional Drivers
Truck drivers make their living behind the wheel, which means that they are held to stricter safety standards and that they can feel pressured to overperform (they get paid by the number of miles they cover). Truck driver negligence in any form can lead to serious truck accidents (and every truck accident is a serious truck accident). The following are some of the most common and most dangerous forms of truck driver negligence:
- Impairment – The law has even less tolerance for impairment in truck drivers.
- Distraction – Driving a truck safely requires one’s utmost attention, and there is no room for distraction
- Exhaustion – Truck drivers who push themselves beyond the limits of safety (and the law) are dangerously drowsy truck drivers.
- Excess Speed – Excess speed makes accidents more likely and increases the risk that they will be deadly.
Each of these forms of negligence is exceptionally dangerous but is also completely avoidable. Truck drivers who don’t put safety first leave the rest of us at increased risk of being seriously injured in truck accidents.
