Fort Smith Truck Driver Error/Negligence Attorneys
Large freight trucks are the most powerful vehicles on the road. Because of the extreme size and weight of trucks, collisions involving trucks typically cause more damage than typical auto accidents. Driving large trucks is a huge responsibility, and when drivers fall short, it can mean tragedy.
Truck drivers can endanger themselves and others with even the slightest bit of reckless behavior. Factors like fatigue and speeding, while already dangerous in other contexts, can lead to fatal mistakes when large trucks are involved. By trying to travel from point A to point B in less time, many truck drivers will exceed safe speed limits and surpass the legal cap on the number of hours spent commercial truck driving. Risky behaviors such as these contribute to poor decisions on the road and can lead to a number of potentially fatal errors. Some actions negligent truck drivers can be liable for include:
- Failure to Signal Turns
- Aggressive Driving
- Driving with an Overweight Load
- Driving During Adverse Conditions
The attorneys at McCutchen & Sexton – The Law Firm believe that no person should have to suffer because of the negligence of other drivers. We will work to ensure victims of truck driver negligence receive proper restitution.
