Was A Truck Driver Responsible For An Accident?

Commercial drivers are held to a high level of safety standards for a reason: They are driving approximately 80,000 pounds of steel that can instantly take the life of anyone it strikes. Because of the huge size and weight of these vehicles, people in personal automobiles can be severely injured or even killed in crashes involving semi trucks or other commercial vehicles.

At Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC, we represent victims of commercial vehicle accidents and their families. In trucking accident cases, the driver, the trucking company or both may be held accountable for accidents if they acted negligently in some way.

Examples of negligent behavior by truck drivers include:

  • Driving while distracted or drowsy
  • Speeding or failing to observe traffic signs

Examples of negligent behavior by trucking companies include:

  • Providing insufficient training for drivers
  • Making unrealistic demands on drivers that encourage dangerous behaviors such as driving without sleep or speeding
