Truck Driver Negligence

Taking Action Against a Negligent Truck Driver

Most truck accidents are caused by truck driver negligence, or failure to act within reasonable standards of caution or care. Though all truck drivers are required to adhere to federal trucking guidelines, this is not always the case. While many commercial truck drivers operate their vehicles professionally and safely, other truck drivers can blatantly ignore the rules of the road and other federal standards, which can put all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians in danger. At Bill Easterly & Associates, our truck accident attorneys are dedicated to holding Nashville truck drivers accountable for their failure to drive safely.

Examples of driver negligence may include:

  • Illegal driving/operating maneuvers
  • Distracted driving, including texting behind the wheel
  • Failing to secure load to the vehicle bed
  • Overloading the vehicle over the federal limit
  • Failing to inspect the condition of the vehicle
  • Drowsy or tired driving
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Falsifying driving logs to exceed number of permitted operation hours.

Nearly all accidents are entirely preventable. If only a person had acted in greater care or had exercised more caution, countless devastating collisions could have been completely avoided. Unfortunately, all humans make mistakes, and some mistakes could lead to serious or fatal injuries.
