Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck drivers are responsible for the safety of the trucks they drive. In order to ensure optimal safety, inspections must be performed daily and become even more essential when weight is added or removed from a trucker’s load. It’s crucial for weight to be distributed correctly and properly secured to prevent rollover or tipping. Truck drivers should always keep a sufficient distance from smaller vehicles and stay in the right lane.
However, sometimes these safety precautions still lead to accidents. Since the majority of trucking companies pay truck drivers by mile, many of them will continue driving even when they are tired. In addition, some truck drivers may use stimulants such as cocaine order to stay awake. Using simulants and driving while exhausted can deter the truck driver’s ability to drive safely and lead to serious accidents.
Compensation is Your Right
Whether action is taken against the trucking company, driver, or both, you have the right to receive compensation for a variety of expenses. These include the cost of medical treatments, loss of income if a temporary or permanent absence from work is a result of the injuries, emotional distress, and the wrongful death of a loved one.
