Truck Driver Negligence

The Personal Injury Advocates fight to get full compensation for victims of trucking accidents resulting from a driver's negligence!

When victims of truck driver negligence settle too quickly with the insurance companies, they may not get full compensation. Rely on our experienced advocates to build the strongest possible case for you.

According to studies by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driving too fast for conditions is the leading cause of semi-truck accidents. Other common forms of negligence on the part of a truck driver include:

  • Vehicle traveling in the wrong lane
  • Lane change without signaling
  • Running a red light
  • Driver backing up in a traffic lane
  • Tailgating that leads to a rear-end collision

Truck driver negligence may also include drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs. Trucking companies use strict standards when hiring, training and supervising truck drivers. The company may be negligent if it failed to examine a truck driver's record, which may include a history of driving violations.

We recognize how difficult it can be to recover from an accident caused by a truck driver's negligence. Call 678-855-7205 now.
