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.
