Norcross Truck Accident Attorney
The semi-trucks with which we share the roads are massive vehicles, and as such, any accidents involving them tend to be extremely serious. If someone else’s negligence causes you to be injured in a truck accident, don’t delay consulting with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Norcross.
Semis Pose Unique Risks to Other Drivers
Semis are many, many times larger and heavier than other vehicles on our roadways, and all that size and bulk adds up to specific dangers that include the following:
- Longer Stopping Distances – Because of their size and weight, big rigs require far greater stopping distances, and truck drivers are responsible for maintaining safe distances between their rigs and other motorists.
- More Blind Spots – Truck drivers experience vast expanses of blind spots along all four sides of their trucks, and truckers can’t see vehicles within these blind spots. Truck drivers are, nevertheless, responsible for driving safely, and this includes taking their blind spots into careful consideration.
- Tire Blowouts – The 18 tires that tether massive semis to the road are essential to a trucker’s ability to safely maneuver his or her rig. When a tire blows out, it puts those motorists in the immediate vicinity in danger, and the flying debris and debris-strewn highway that follows the blowout can also put more remote motorists at risk. Trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that their rigs have complete sets of safe, working tires every time they hit the road, and truck drivers are responsible for conducting regular tire safety checks on every run.
