Types of Truck Driver Negligence

One of the leading causes of truck and 18-wheeler accidents is truck driver negligence. Trucking companies are heavily regulated, and truck drivers are expected to meet a number of safety standards. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

The following examples of truck driver negligence cause countless injuries and unnecessary deaths each year:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Failure to secure load/cargo
  • Overloaded/overweight loads
  • Poor driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding

Trucking companies are quick to deny any wrongdoing on part of their employees. They also have their own insurance companies who act quickly after an accident or collision happens.

Although the odds may seem to be against the accident victim, that is not necessarily the case. Working with a seasoned Houston truck accident attorney who understands how the trucking industry works can be extremely beneficial in an injury case.
