Over an estimated 15 million commercial trucks operate in the United States, with over 400 billion miles logged by drivers. Commercial vehicles are a powerful force on the nation’s highways that leave incredible destruction in their wake when something goes wrong and an accident occurs. A number of things may cause these types of accidents including truck driver negligence, road hazards, or the actions of those in passenger vehicles.
Truck drivers have a duty to follow strict safety guidelines when permitted to operate such heavy machinery. Trucking companies also have a duty to ensure that they and their drivers adhere to outlined regulations. When one fails to follow protocol and causes an accident, then they are accountable for related injuries and damages.
