Pursue Fair Compensation After An Accident Caused By A Negligent Or Careless Truck Driver
Accidents caused by negligent operation of these vehicles can result in long-lasting physical, mental and financial consequences for victims who are often drivers and passengers in cars. That is why professional drivers are obligated to use extra caution when navigating in traffic. Particularly, obstructed views and blind spots exist in semitrucks, busses, garbage trucks, taxicabs, city-owned vehicles and delivery trucks like FedEx, UPS and parts delivery vehicles.
Owners of transportation companies must follow strict rules and regulations in the operation of their vehicles. Freight being transported should be tightly secured so that loads do not fall off into traffic. Trucks must also be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure safe operation. Drivers should be well-rested and able to safely perform their jobs. If these regulations are not followed and an accident is caused, the driver and driver’s employer could be held responsible.
Steps To Take After A Truck Wreck
Be sure to do things, such as:
- Collect contact information for drivers, witnesses, the owner of the at-fault vehicle and the driver’s employer.
