Forms of Truck Driver Negligence
Making deliveries on time is a real challenge for the average trucker or 18 wheeler driver. Some may ignore safety protocols to try to meet the timeframe of their allotted schedules. Others wrongly believe that driving a truck for a living is an easy task and choose to use smartphones while driving. No matter what the type of negligence a trucker engages in, it is entirely unacceptable and could put 100% of the liability onto the trucker and his or her parent company.
Negligent or reckless acts a trucker may perform while behind the wheel include:
- Browsing social media posts
- Reading or writing text messages
- Using the GPS device to plot a route
- Eating or drinking
- Consuming drugs or alcohol
- Intentionally “resting eyes”
Other forms of negligence are less deliberate but dangerous all the same. Subconscious driving errors include actions like failing to check blind spots before merging or going over the speed limit. It is important to allow our Boston truck accident attorneys to thoroughly review all possible evidence so we can see what forms of truck driver negligence may have been a factor in your crash.
