Distracted driving and large truck collisions

Large truck crashes happen for many reasons, including fatigue, the use of alcohol and prescription medication as well as speeding. However, distracted driving is especially concerning and has resulted in many large truck wrecks over the years. When someone who is driving a large truck becomes distracted, they may put many lives in danger, including their own. Sadly, this behavior continues to occur far too frequently on roadways across the country.

Large truck drivers may be distracted by a number of diversions. Smartphones are a common source of distraction and some truckers use their phones to text, upload content to social networking sites, browse through social media, talk with friends and family members and so on. Changing the radio and eating food are other distractions and these distractions can be especially difficult for someone whose job responsibilities keep them behind the wheel for extended periods of time. After all, a truck driver may become bored or tired of spending so much time looking at the road and they may look for ways to keep themselves entertained behind the wheel.

Distracted driving has resulted in the loss of many lives and has also caused a significant number of injuries. If you were hit by a truck driver who was distracted, it may be difficult to prove that they were distracted at the time of the accident. However, you deserve justice and should not hesitate to explore your options. Our crash section covers more on large truck collision injuries and other consequences victims face.
