All too often, we hear about people who are involved in automobile accidents with 18-wheelers, semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles. These accidents can result in serious injuries or death. Such large commercial vehicles are visible on our roadways and travel nationwide every day, with few people considering the danger these vehicles pose. The size and weight of these vehicles alone is enough to cause severe damage, but what about the added dangers when the drivers, owners and operators are not doing their part to operate these vehicles safely.
In today’s economy, everyone is trying to save money and commercial truck lines are no exception! Even though federal regulations limit a driver’s time at the wheel, drivers are often expected to driver farther distances, for extended periods of time with less sleep and rest. This can lead to exhausted, distracted drivers! Drivers, who are fatigued, inattentive, or under the influence, create potentially hazardous and unsafe road conditions. Companies may also try to save money by cutting corners on maintenance, regular service checks and safety checks. If not properly operated, serviced and maintained, these large commercial vehicles can quickly turn into forces of deadly destruction! In a matter of seconds, a life can be shattered due to a commercial vehicle accident!
