Truck accidents kill and injure thousands of Americans on U.S. interstates and highways every year. As you may have learned from our blog last week, these accidents may cause catastrophic injuries. Survivors may suffer brain injuries, paralysis from spinal cord injuries and disfigurement. Many people involved in these accidents lose their lives. It is crucial for motorists to be extra cautious while driving in close proximity to these large vehicles. There is no secret to avoiding truck accidents, but there are many tips you can utilize that will reduce your chances.
In many cases, people drive safely and are still involved in truck accidents. That is because commercial carriers and drivers may be negligent or reckless. Commercial drivers may be intoxicated, fatigued, or they can forget to perform maintenance. Trucking companies may hire unqualified drivers who put everyone else at risk. The sad truth is: even if you follow this guide perfectly, it does not guarantee you can avoid a truck accident.
