Pursuing Truck Driver Error or Negligence Claims

While large commercial trucks do pose an inherent danger to the comparatively smaller vehicles around them, this danger may be critically mitigated by a well-trained, experienced driver. Sadly, however, even the very best drivers may make a driving error or behave negligently and contribute to a serious accident. When an accident does occur, the injuries and property damages that result are typically more severe than in accidents involving other, smaller vehicle classes.

Common Forms of Truck Driver Error & Negligence

While drivers are required to undergo extensive safety training that satisfies both federal and state guidelines, some drivers still fail to adhere to their training and engage in one or more of the following dangerous behaviors:

  • Failure to Signal Turns
  • Aggressive Driving
  • Driving with Overweight Load
  • Driving During Adverse Conditions

Should any of the above-listed actions contribute to an accident, it is more than likely that the driver may be held financially liable for any of the resulting damages sustained by the victims of the accident. With that in mind, it may be critical that victims retain legal representation as soon after their accident as they possibly can to help them recover any associated damages.
