Truckers are required to maintain a commercial driver’s license and abide by strict trucking laws and regulations. Truckers are held to exacting standards for good cause. Given the size of tractor-trailers, accidents involving such vehicles often cause serious or fatal injuries to other motorists.
Despite stringent laws and safety measures that have been put in place to reduce the incidence of truck accidents, such accidents are still far too common. Many truck accidents are caused by truck driver errors, including:
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Weight violations
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Failure to take adequate rest breaks
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions
