Truck Accidents Caused by Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is a huge problem – one that has gotten much worse with the advent of the smartphones. One of the most prevalent forms of driver distraction is texting and driving. Although it is illegal to text or make calls on handheld phones while driving, many truck drivers still choose to ignore this rule, and the result is thousands of preventable injuries and deaths each year. Because trucks are so massive in both size and weight, when they collide with smaller vehicles, the results can be catastrophic for the occupants of the smaller vehicle.

Truck drivers have a special responsibility in properly handling 80,000-pound trailers, and that means following the law down to the letter. When they fail to do so and someone gets hurt as a result, they can and should be held accountable for their negligence. Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. is ready to take aggressive action to ensure that you are compensated fairly.
