Driver negligence is the leading cause of fatal truck accidents. It is essential that truck drivers maintain proper speeds, obey traffic signs, pay attention to the road, and not be distracted by cell phones or other devices. Drivers must also maintain a healthy lifestyle by getting plenty of rest and avoiding drugs and alcohol.
Sometimes the accident is not caused by driver negligence. The accident may be due to defective products, hazardous roadways, defective truck tires, defective truck brakes, poor maintenance, or failure of the trucking company to take proper care of their vehicles. In these situations it is not the truck driver who is at fault. It is the trucking companies fault for allowing an unsafe truck on the road.
