Madison Truck Driver Error Lawyers

While a substantial number of trucking accidents are caused by mechanical problems, negligence on the part of the trucking company, or other problems outside the driver’s realm of influence, the vast majority of the highway accidents involving large commercial trucks are the result of driver error. Trucking professionals have extensive training in how to properly and safely operate their vehicles while on the road, but various kinds of impairments can lead to a diminishing of these skills.

Accidents with trucks can be devastating for the smaller vehicle involved, and usually come with significant injuries and oppressive medical bills. If you have suffered an injury due to the reckless actions of a truck driver, the legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. can help you to seek the compensation you deserve.

Reasons for Impairment

A recent study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) found that driver error was 10 times more likely to be the proximate cause of an accident than any other factor. The information accumulated in this study indicated that the following factors were the top three contributors to truck driver error:

  • The use of over the counter or prescription drugs accounted for 44% of accidents.
  • 23% of the incidents resulted from the trucker driving too fast for the road conditions.
  • Another 18% of accidents were attributed to driver fatigue.

Anytime the negligence of a truck driver results in an injury to an innocent party, the driver is likely to be found liable for the damage.
