As you know, sharing the road with trucks is something you have to do. It doesn’t matter where you are traveling, you know that commercial trucks are everywhere. While there is nothing wrong with this if everyone shares the road, you are aware that this is not something all drivers do.
Here are a few things you should understand about truck accidents:
— Most truck accidents are related to negligence. This can include but is not limited to a lack of sleep, distracted driving, speeding, and improper training.
— Truck accidents typically cause injuries. When a truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the size difference alone puts the people in the smaller vehicle at a disadvantage. This often leads to serious injuries and even death.
— Truck companies will do whatever it takes to avoid responsibility. Even if you know that the trucker was responsible for the accident, you can be rest assured that the trucking company will fight back against this. They don’t want to admit fault, as it could cost them a lot of money.
