Truck Driver Errors

Minnesota & Nebraska Truck Driver Negligence Lawyers

The trucks on the road are large and that means that they are dangerous. When a driver makes an error, it can be deadly. This is why truck drivers are held to a high standard while they are on the road. They have to be extra cautious; otherwise the results could be fatal for everyone involved.

Truckers have a certain set of rules and federal trucking laws that they have to abide by. They have to maintain their commercial driver’s license, and also abide by the rules of the road that everyone has to abide by.

Despite the stringent trucking regulations and laws, there are times that truck accidents due to truck driver errors happen anyway. What the laws and regulations are designed for is to reduce the likelihood of such accidents happening, but they are still quite common. When you or a loved one has become the victim of such a truck accident, it is important to contact an experienced truck accidents lawyer as soon as possible because you may have a personal injury claim.

Skilled Truck Accident Injury Representation

There are different reasons why truck drivers get into accidents. Some of the most common include:

  • Failure to properly maintain the truck
  • Failure to secure the loads the proper way
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Weight violations
  • Driving in dangerous weather conditions
  • Truck driver fatigue (not taking the necessary rest breaks)
  • Not maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles
  • Driving while intoxicated (DWI)

These are just some of the reasons why a person may be involved in a truck accident with a truck driver. When you have been the victim of a truck accident, it is very important that you do not hesitate to contact your attorney as soon as possible.
