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
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.
