Truck Accident Attorney
Causes of Truck Accidents
For many people, driving on the same roads and highways as commercial trucks
can be a bit intimidating. These behemoth motor vehicles take up large
portions of the road and have to be driven with extreme care so that accidents
can be avoided. Because semi-trucks and the like are so large, there are
unique challenges that face truck drivers. They have to be extremely careful
to change lanes because blind spots are larger, for one. Many are involved
in accidents with trucks because the truck changed lanes without seeing
the vehicle next to it. Another factor that plagues truck drivers is fatigue.
These drivers are under strict deadlines that put on the pressure to deliver
their cargo on time. This means that they might, wrongfully so, neglect
their mandated resting periods and fall asleep at the wheel.
Practically, trucks are more prone to accidents for a number of reasons.
Their turning radius is wider, it takes a longer distance for them to
stop and they are more prone to rollover accidents. If these drivers are
not properly trained or were hired without a proper license, they are
putting those on the road at great risk of injury. If you were involved
in an accident with a commercial truck for any of the following or a related
reason, we implore you to seek the help of a Kennesaw personal injury
attorney at our firm. We can help you formulate a plan to hold the truck
driver or trucking company accountable for your injuries and damages.
