Truckers Face a Slew of Distractions When On the Road
Driver distraction is a very common cause of many commercial truck accidents. Although driving while distracted is dangerous at every level, the issue is even more dangerous when the distracted person is driving a large, heavy semi-truck.
The following reckless actions committed while driving are common reasons why a trucker may divert his or her attention off the road:
- Texting or talking on the phone,
- Making web searches or looking for an address,
- Eating a large meal that can require both hands,
- Adjusting the radio station, and
- Talking with passengers
Establishing Liability In a Negligent Accident Case
Any person who has been injured in a truck accident may be eligible for compensation from the negligent at-fault party. To successfully win a personal injury claim, it is necessary to demonstrate that the driver was being reckless at the time of the accident. For this reason, proving that the trucker was driving while distracted can be difficult, particularly when there is no video surveillance or witness testimony of the driver’s negligence. In most cases, it will be necessary to obtain company records to build a case against the careless driver.
In order to file a complaint with a court and ensure all necessary information is obtained from the trucking company, obtaining the support of a skilled attorney who has the resources and network is necessary to build a strong case. Establish liability in a trucking accident with the support of a well-versed attorney.
