Truck Accidents Should be Taken Seriously
About one in eight traffic deaths in the US involve an 18 wheeler, tractor trailer, or semi-truck. Many of these accidents take place because the truck driver can’t see the cars that are their blind spot. Other times, there is a problem with the vehicle or the driver is negligent. In these cases, the truck driver or the trucking company should be held responsible.
Often, commercial truck drivers are not following the rules of the road or are driving recklessly. Other times, the driver was not properly trained or certified to be driving the vehicle. Despite heavy regulations, some of these accidents are a result of the truck driver driving while fatigued. This is especially common in cities like El Paso where many truck drivers pass through on long routes.
