Liability In Accidents Involving Trucks
Truck drivers have a responsibility to take every precaution to avoid accidents. They are held to a very high standard. Most car accidents involve drivers that are distracted, speeding or under the influence. This can play a role in truck accidents, but fatigue plays a far larger role. Truck drivers often work long hours and are encouraged to complete their routes as quickly as possible. This can have lethal consequences for other drivers on the road. Victims of truck accidents will usually have the ability to file a bodily injury claim in order to be compensated for lost wages, pain and suffering and medical bills.
