Understanding Truck Accidents
Trucks are massive machines, and because they're heavy, difficult to maneuver, and slow to stop, they present a danger to everyone on public roads. Because of this, the trucking industry is heavily regulated to ensure that trucking companies and truck drivers play by the rules and take reasonable steps to keep the public safe from common causes of truck accidents.
Below are common causes of truck accidents:
- Negligent Drivers – Careless and negligent truck drivers present a danger to everyone. This is why federal regulators enforce a number of laws to ensure drivers act responsibly. These laws include strict drug and alcohol policies to prevent impaired driving accidents, strict license and training requirements, and other various laws that prohibit negligent behaviors such as texting while driving, distracted driving, speeding, and aggressive driving.
Trucking Company Negligence – Trucking companies are required by law to ensure their vehicles and drivers are safe. These means that trucking companies must keep detailed records, ensure that vehicles don't have
defective equipment, and properly train drivers.
Overworked Drivers –
Tired drivers pose a serious hazard on public roadways. For this reason, trucking laws have strict policies in place to regulate the hours truck drivers can and cannot work. These laws are known as Hours-of-Service regulations.
