Trucking accidents commonly result from carelessness and recklessness on behalf of the truck driver or trucking company. The Federal Government has enacted strict regulations for the operation of big trucks, and when violation of such guidelines leads to an accident the victim has a right to demand compensation.
Common examples of negligence in trucking accidents include:
- Fatigue at the wheel
- Unsecured loads
- Speeding and aggressive or reckless driving
- Poor visibility or lack of reflectors
- Poor maintenance of the truck
- Pressure from employer to complete routes faster
- Failure to abide by federal Hours of Service regulations governing how long a driver can stay on the road before taking a break to rest
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
