Many Truck Accidents Occur Because of Cars, but Trucks Cause More Significant Damages
We have detailed it before; the numbers show that motorists are at fault in roughly 80% of trucking accidents. Unfortunately, several motorists are unaware of how to drive safely around large commercial trucks. However, this stat doesn’t clear truck drivers who choose negligence when they get behind the wheel of their large vehicles.
Truck drivers must abide by specific laws and regulations. Far too often, though, they fail to do so. Truck drivers may speed when they shouldn’t. When you combine their speed with up to 80,000 pounds, the force can cause the most damage possible.
Motorists in passenger vehicles must be better, but it will never excuse negligent truck drivers’ negligence and the catastrophic injuries they cause. To pursue maximum compensation, it helps for all truck accident victims to speak with lawyers who can help determine liability. Trucking companies and insurance providers back their drivers. Often, motorists feel as though they have no partners in the matter.
