Drunk Driving Truck Accidents

Drunk Driving Truck Accidents

Call Our Aggressive Marietta Truck Accident Attorneys Now

There are many differences between the average civilian driver and a commercial truck driver operating a big rig, but there's at least one thing they have in common: it is extremely reckless-- and illegal-- to be on the road while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have injured by a commercial truck driver who was drunk behind the wheel, we invite you to contact our firm today.

At Jones & Swanson, our dedicated and respected Marietta truck accident lawyers have recovered tens of millions of dollars for clients who have been hurt or wronged by the negligence of others. In the case of drunk driving truck accidents, that negligence demonstrates a clear disregard for public safety that deserves to be recognized before the law.

Big truck drivers are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These laws dictate how long a driver can drive before they need to rest. Several drivers and their companies violate these rules so they can make more money. This leads to sleepy, fatigued drivers that make mistakes which lead to bad accidents and injured people.

Let our experienced attorneys get you the compensation you deserve. Call our firm at (770) 884-6652 to start exploring your legal options.

Dangerous Commercial Big Rig Drivers

It's well known that the consumption of alcohol can impair a driver's ability to be safe on the road. This is especially true for commercial truck drivers who must be specially trained to operate tremendously large and heavy trucks and rigs safely beside other consumer vehicles.

A driver under the influence of alcohol can experience:

  • Drowsiness & fatigue
  • Impaired focus
  • Reduced reaction times
  • Impaired vision
  • Overconfidence

Additionally, some truck drivers turn to substance and/or prescription drug abuse to endure long hours and fight fatigue. These substances and alcohol can lead to impaired decision-making and an inhibited performance behind the wheel.

If a drunk or impaired driver was responsible for the commercial truck accident that hurt you or your loved one, we invite you to contact Jones & Swanson today. We know what it takes to develop a compelling case on your behalf and ensure that maximum relief is diligently pursued.
