Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Negligence
Did a Trucker's Negligent Actions Cause Your Injury?
Truck drivers need to make sure they take care of their bodies and minds in order to safely complete the tasks their jobs ask of them. Failure to do so can result in catastrophic crashes and put the lives of countless motorists and their passengers in danger. Even with these risks, both trucking companies and truck drivers attempt to save extra time and money by cutting corners. When these decisions result in a terrible accident, those injured in the crash deserve the opportunity to fight for compensation to cover any damages caused by the incident.

What Can Cause These Types of Accidents?

Some other factors we look into during the case include:
- Driving in a reckless manner based on road gradient, weather conditions, visibility, etc.
- Falsified inspection logs, maintenance records, driver’s logs, etc.
- Whether the driver was improperly changing lanes, following the rules of the road, tailgating, etc.
- Whether the driver was distracted by their mobile device or other item
- Alcohol or drug use
- Whether the driver was fatigued from failing to take care of themselves or from driving past their mandated limits
