Truck driver inattention and negligence can cause an accident

There is no denying the fact that most trucker drivers are professionals. In other words, they do whatever it takes to remain safe at all times. Along with this, they have training that allows them to properly deal with any dangerous situation that may arise.

Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that truckers never make mistakes on the road. In the event of inattention or negligence, a truck driver could cause a serious accident that kills or injures an innocent person.

Some of the most common factors contributing to a trucking accident include:

-- Truck driver fatigue, due to a lack of sleep

-- Distracted driving, such as texting or talking on the phone

-- Unbalanced load

-- Unsecured load

-- Faulty safety equipment

-- Tire blowout

-- Improper training

-- Speeding or any other type of reckless driving

-- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs

At our law firm, we know what it takes to help people who have been injured in a commercial truck accident. This often means investigating the crash to determine the exact cause.

Regardless of why you were involved in a truck accident, don't overlook the importance of receiving immediate medical care. Along with this, work with your health care team to ensure that you receive the appropriate long-term treatment.

Once you're able to do so, turn your attention to your legal rights. If a trucker caused the accident, you'll want to learn more about the way to receive compensation. In the end, the money that you receive can be used to pay medical bills and other expenses.
