Macon Truck Accident Attorney
The impact and violence of truck accidents are often devastating, and the occupants of the involved vehicle that isn’t the truck are far more vulnerable to serious injuries. While many factors can contribute to truck accidents, they are often caused by negligence on the part of the truck driver and/or the trucking company. If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, it’s time to consult with an experienced Macon truck accident lawyer.
Truck Driver Negligence
The first line of defense when it comes to preventing truck accidents is the truck driver. Truck drivers are professional drivers who are held to more rigid safety standards, and when they fail to carefully adhere to these standards, they increase the risk of dangerous truck accidents happening. Truck driver negligence is often to blame for truck accidents, and it can come in any of the following forms:
- Excess speed
Trucking Company Negligence
The trucking companies that send trucks out across our roads also bear a profound responsibility for safety, including all of the following:
- Hiring safe, experienced, and appropriately licensed truck drivers
- Hiring reliable, experienced, and appropriately licensed mechanics
- Maintaining safe truck fleets
- Scheduling and implementing regular safety and maintenance checks
When trucking companies fail to meet the necessary safety standards, they greatly increase the risk that dangerous truck accidents will happen.
