Hurt in an Accident with a Negligent Truck Driver?
Everyone understands that honest accidents can happen in traffic. Sudden sun in the eyes, brakes that give out or a motorist with a heart attack may cause truck accidents that perhaps could not have been easily avoided.
In other cases, however, it is clear that a truck driver was driving carelessly and negligently by:
- Talking on a cell phone while driving
- Texting while driving
- Engaging in activities such as looking at maps or fiddling with the car’s radio
- Driving too fast for roadway conditions
- Drinking and driving
- Driving while excessively sleepy or tired (fatigued)
- Driving while under the influence of prescription or over-the-counter medications that specifically warn against driving while taking them
- Not reading or paying attention to provided signs and warnings, including the posted speed limit, yield signs and dotted lines on the road
Was a careless truck driver driving negligently in the crash that injured you or killed your family member? The best way to find out may be to have an experienced attorney undertake a detailed investigation into the events leading up to the crash. Police reports are likely to give scant information — and sometimes flat-out wrong information.
More evidence is most likely required to build a strong case on your behalf if you were injured under these circumstances.
