Truck Driver Negligence And Inattention
Due to their advanced training and special license they must carry, truck drivers are considered professional drivers. As such, they should be able to avoid costly errors and devastating accidents. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Numerous factors can contribute to a trucking accident, including:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Unbalanced load
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Improper training
- Unsecured load
- Faulty safety equipment
- Tire blowouts
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or driving recklessly
