Truck drivers who are responsible for crashing their tractor-trailers are very likely to seriously injure or kill anyone they may strike with their motor vehicle. Because of a tractor-trailer’s size and weight, the injuries and damages that result from accidents involving this type of motor vehicle tend to be more severe than injuries resulting from car accidents.
Truck drivers are considered professional drivers who are required to abide by specific federal and state safety laws, including the laws and regulations that are specified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Often, driver fatigue can cause a truck driver to crash his vehicle. This can happen when a trucking company has provided certain incentives, which then cause speed to be the priority over safety.
