Common Types Of Driver Error in Truck Accidents
There are a number of people and contributing factors that can result in a truck accident. The most common cause of truck accidents, however, is driver error. In fact, according to a national statistic, truck driver error is ten times more likely to cause a truck accident than any other contributing factor.
Some common types of truck driver error include:
- Driving for more hours than what is permitted
- Driving while fatigued
- Influence of drugs and/ or alcohol
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Unfamiliarity with the route
Many of these errors are preventable. In addition to driver error, manufacturing mistakes, equipment failure, hazardous roads, and poor weather conditions can all lead to a truck accident. Regardless of what caused the accident, we work tirelessly to ensure the negligent party is held responsible and to help the client recover the compensation he or she deserves. We are not afraid to go toe to toe with a trucking or insurance company and we will not hesitate to take a case to trial if doing so gives our client the best chance of securing maximum compensation.
