Unfortunately, truck drivers engage in the type of risky behaviors that often leave victims injured, disabled and suffering. In certain cases, commercial truck drivers may use controlled substances while driving or fail to perform required safety checks on their vehicles. Some truck drivers — especially those who drive for a living — experience intense fatigue after logging so many hours on the road.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Most truck accidents are the result of distracted driving, aggressive driving or driving too fast for the conditions. Commercial drivers are responsible for operating their vehicles safely and in accordance with Alabama state laws. At-fault truck drivers and their employers must be held responsible for their actions when they result in grievous and preventable injuries.
