Victims Can Sustain Serious Injuries from these Truck Accident Causes

Some of the most common truck accident causes include truck drivers who:

  • Exceed the speed limit to meet deadlines
  • Travel too closely to the vehicle in front of them
  • Fail to maintain safe maintenance practices resulting in worn brakes and faulty parts
  • Do not get enough sleep or follow required resting periods, and operate the large truck exhausted
  • Use drugs or alcohol behind the wheel
  • Become distracted by GPS equipment, phones, or other electronic devices
  • Fail to yield or stop according to the rules of the road, signage, or traffic lights
  • Overcorrect or lose control of the truck from high lane shifting
  • Drive recklessly and make illegal maneuvers

The Law is One Your Side: So is the Caruso Law Offices, PC

There are a unique set of laws that regulate truck driving activity, and monitor the subset of laws all drivers must obey. When violations occur, our law offices will hold the driver and trucking company accountable for their negligence, and will report their unlawful behavior to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a segment of the USDOT, states that all truck drivers must obtain and hold a valid CDL license to operate a semi-truck, which requires:

  • Being over 21 years of age
  • The ability to drive across state lines
  • Having no prior disqualifying criminal offenses
  • Passing a road skills test
  • Clearing a medical examination
  • Successfully undergoing a knowledge and skills test

When a trucking company hires employees who are not successfully qualified to be semi-truck drivers, or who are not given the proper training necessary to begin driving, they are negligent in their hiring practices and will become a target of our legal claim.
