Truck Driver Negligence Causes Accidents, Injuries & Death
The trucking industry is astronomical in size and it plays a major role in our economy. Since there are so many trucks on America's roadways at any given moment, truck accidents are bound to happen. Just like your average driver, truckers are prone to drive tired, to drive distracted, to drive under the influence, and to drive at unsafe speeds. Truck accidents are frequently caused by:
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Violating hours of service and driving tired
- Reckless driving
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Driving with too heavy of a load
- Driving with faulty brakes
