Turn to a Macon Truck Accident Attorney Today
The trucks that we share our roads with are many, many times larger and heavier than the vehicles we drive, and this puts us at a considerable safety disadvantage when it comes to truck accidents. If a truck driver’s negligence leaves you or someone you love injured, you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to an experienced Windham truck accident attorney.
Truck drivers play an important role in our economy by getting the consumer goods we want where we want them to be. In the process, however, the bustling trucking industry can push truck drivers (and trucking companies) to cut safety corners, and this makes our roads far more dangerous for everyone who travels on them. Consider the following:
- Truck drivers spend long hours behind the wheel, and the federal government addresses the dangers inherent to this practice with careful hours-of-service rules and regulations. Truckers who take matters into their own hands (and/or who are pushed to do so by their employers) by ignoring these rules can be dangerously drowsy behind the wheel.
- Truck drivers experience large blind spots all the way around their rigs, and when they aren’t scrupulous about checking these blind spots before changing lanes, trouble can ensue.
- Massive trucks require much longer stopping distances on our roads, and truck drivers who fail to account for this can cause life-threatening accidents. The effects of bad weather and/or poorly maintained roads increase the risk involved.
