Truck drivers bear the heavy responsibility of operating massive vehicles containing commercial goods and ensuring that their cargo arrive at their destinations in a timely and safe manner. While many truck drivers take their responsibilities seriously, some truck drivers fail to observe road safety rules, creating risks to other motorists who tend to suffer catastrophic injuries due to truck accidents.
Common Forms of Truck Driver Negligence
Many truck accidents are attributed to truck driver negligence or reckless behavior such as:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including illegal, prescription and/or over-the-counter medication)
- Drinking and driving
- Driving while fatigued
- Failing to have the proper training before driving commercial vehicles
- Driving without a valid commercial driver’s license
- Violating federal hours-of-service regulations
- Violating common traffic laws
- Failing to properly secure loads
- Overloading trucks
