Jonesboro Truck Crash Attorney
The serious nature of truck accidents leaves the occupants of the other vehicles involved exceptionally vulnerable to life-threatening injuries. Truckers drive for a living, and as such, they are governed by demanding safety rules, regulations, and restrictions that are intended to help keep everyone who travels on our roadways safe. When truck drivers fail to meet these responsibilities, dangerous truck crashes can be the end result. If a truck driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a truck crash, you need the professional legal counsel of a dedicated Jonesboro truck crash lawyer on your side.
There are a variety of factors that make truck crashes more likely to happen and make them more likely to be deadly, including:
- Because of the immense size and weight of their rigs, truck drivers require much longer stopping distances. This means that when a truck driver doesn’t allow enough space between his or her truck and the vehicle ahead, it can have fatal consequences.
- Truck drivers experience long stretches of blind spots in both the front and rear and along both sides. When a truck driver fails to calculate these blind spots into his or her driving decisions, it makes serious accidents that much more likely.
- Truck drivers are paid to move massive cargos across our roadways, which means they spend a lot of time behind the wheel. While there are exacting hours-of-service restrictions to help keep drowsy truckers off the road, some take it upon themselves to keep driving beyond the limits of safety.
