How Trucking Accidents Differ from Other Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Commercial trucking accidents are different than other motor vehicle accidents in a variety of ways:

  • First, commercial truck drivers must adhere to specific guidelines that govern their conduct, such as how many hours they may drive within a specified time period. These rules are designed to ensure that drivers get sufficient rest and to protect the public from fatigued commercial truck drivers who may be tempted to drive without adequate sleep in order to make more money.
  • Second, commercial drivers are subject to various standards governing transportation. In some cases, an accident may have been caused by a load that weighed in excess of permissible requirements or that was not properly secured. In a commercial trucking accident, we often hire independent trucking accident investigators to determine whether these or other factors caused the accident.
  • Third, if the driver is employed by a company, the company will usually be responsible for the driver’s activities. This is important because the trucking company may also be responsible for the accident, in addition to the driver.

Trucking companies also have a responsibility to employ safe drivers. In some instances, companies might employ drivers who have significant driving incidents (such as driving-while-intoxicated convictions or numerous driving accidents), or a driver may continue to drive for a company even after his or her license is revoked.
