Truck driver error accidents are often the cause of unrealistic expectations
According to a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) report, drivers of large trucks and trailers, such as 18-wheelers and commercial trailer trucks, are 10 times more likely to be the cause of a truck accident. Although dangerous and disadvantageous weather conditions are influential factors in all truck accidents, it is truck driver error that is often the culprit. Truck driver fatigue, failure to stay in the right lane, and speeding are all common causes of truck accidents. In fact, it is often the unrealistic expectations of trucking companies that contribute to a majority of these truck accident causes. If you have been injured as a result of truck driver error, you may be entitled to compensation.
