DUI Truck accident cases require the expertise of a personal injury lawyer
In order to obtain a commercial driver’s license, a truck driver must undergo special training and therefore, must adhere to a higher standard of driving. Truck drivers are on the road for long, grueling hours and often times choose to take stimulants in order to combat exhaustion and be able to successfully meet deadlines and remain on schedule. When a driver chooses to take drugs and/or drink and drive, he/she becomes a safety hazard for other truck drivers and motorists. There are a number of pressures and stress factors that affect truck drivers, including the possibility of not being paid unless they are driving. The skilled personal injury lawyers of The Horwitz Law Group have defended dozens of truck accidents.
