The Dangers of Distracted Truck Drivers
Personal Injury Attorney | Distracted driving is a scourge that kills tens of thousands of Americans every year. Truck accident attorneys understands that distracted driving is even more dangerous when the distracted driver is operating a massive commercial truck.
Truck drivers have a lot of responsibilities and concerns, and some of these can impede upon the driver’s ability to perform his central task: safely operating his vehicle.
Drivers are expected to reach a specific destination in a short period of time. This too-often means checking GPS devices and maps while on the road, which can place everyone in danger. But drivers often feel like they have no choice- trucking companies and their customers have no patience for a lost driver.
Truck drivers also have to deal with a lot of paperwork, and some drivers attempt to complete portions of it while driving.
When combined with fatigue and intoxication, distracted driving makes sharing the road with large commercial trucks a risky endeavor. Drivers do their best, but there are a lot of forces conspiring to make their tasks difficult.
Our truck accident attorney understands where liability truly lies. We will not hesitate to pursue compensation from trucking companies and other responsible parties if you suffered an injury as a result of negligence and distracted driving. – Best Law Firm
