Truck Driver Error / Negligence

Today, large trucks make up a large percentage of the roads and highways. Because of the size of semi-trucks, they can make other drivers nervous while on the highways. Regular automobiles do not linger next to them for fear of crashing. It is the responsibility and duty of the truck driver to control their vehicle and practice safe driving habits. The size of semi-trucks makes it a threat on the road. If the driver fails to use safe driving tactics, they are at risk of being held liable for another person’s injury, their damages, and possible death.

Examples of Truck Driver Negligence

Car crashes that come as a result of a negligent truck driver, make the driver liable for the harm it caused.
