Distracted Truck Driver

The driving that truck drivers do differs from the driving that many of the rest of us do in one key aspect: It is typically their full-time job. Truckers are usually at the wheel many hours every day. They are often under pressure to drive a certain number of miles or make a certain number of deliveries in a limited amount of time. Many truckers drive while sleepy or fatigued. Others drive while inattentive or distracted.

When A Truck Driver Is Distracted, Causing An Accident

Many modern truck cabins are large and comfortable. It is all too easy for truck drivers to become complacent and not stay as alert as they should. Traditional varieties of distracted driving, such as driving while eating, grooming or changing radio station dials are always a hazard. In recent years, digital communication devices such as cellphones, GPS devices and tablet computers have offered many distracting temptations for truckers.

It is not only hand-held devices that are distracting to truck drivers. Research has shown the mental distraction of a conversation detracts from a driver’s ability to concentrate.

Cellphone records often tell the story. Through skillful truck accident reconstruction, an investigation can uncover the truth. If a truck driver was texting or otherwise occupied at the time of the crash that injured you or killed your loved one, Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA, pledges to get to the bottom of the circumstances. Our personal injury lawyers can use all relevant evidence to build strong cases for compensation for our clients.
