Truck Driver Error

Chicago Truck Driver Error Lawyer

Each Chicago truck driver error lawyer of The Horwitz Law Group represents clients who have been injured in truck accidents caused by truck driver error.

Drivers of large trucks are 10 times more likely to be the cause of the crash than other factors, such as weather, road conditions, and vehicle performance, according to a study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

The FMCSA Reports The Top Driver-Related Factors for Large Trucks Involved in Fatal Crashes Are:

  • Failure to stay in the proper lane
  • Driving too fast
  • Inattention (driver fatigue)

Our Chicago Truck Accident Lawyers Investigate Possible Driver-Related Causes of Truck Accidents, Including:

  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Unlicensed drivers
  • Tailgating
  • Wide-angled turns
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Failure to properly use turn signals, flares or safety equipment
  • Failure to ensure that the load is properly secured

The trucking company’s unrealistic expectations of truck drivers and the company’s failure to comply with state and federal safety regulations regarding hours of service are often the real cause of many accident cases that are attributed to truck driver error. When a truck driver must speed or drive without adequate rest breaks, it is no wonder that accidents happen.
