Not all semi-truck crashes are the trucker's fault

The large semi-trucks on the roads come in a variety of styles. From tanker trucks and enclosed trailers to car haulers and other types, it is imperative that the men and women who operate them are doing so in a safe manner. While it is easy to always place the blame on the truckers for these accidents, they might not actually be the ones at fault for them.

Address economic and noneconomic impacts of a semitruck crash

People who head out on the interstates and even some city streets face the possibility of being around semitrucks during their drive. There isn't any doubt that these vehicles provide the economy a valuable service; however, there are times when they are a hazard to the public.

Semi-truck hazards come in a variety of types

The roads around North Carolina are full of big rigs hauling goods all over the place. These large, heavy vehicles have an important part in the nation's commerce, but they can be a huge hazard. When semi-trucks aren't properly maintained or the truckers don't drive safely, innocent motorists and their passengers are at risk of being injured or even killed.

Trucking accidents can't be ignored so take action

The semitrucks that we share the road with play a vital role in the transportation of goods in this country. Without them, we would be very limited in what we are able to buy. Even though they do have an important role, they are actually very dangerous for other people on the roads.

Tired truckers are deadly when they are driving

Truckers are sometimes thought of as individuals who are accustomed to driving long hours under the worst conditions possible. While it is true that they are professional drivers, they need to be in the same mental and physical condition as everyone else. This includes being well-rested for each trek on the road.

Are commercial vehicle drivers allowed to text?

Have you ever seen a trucker driving down the interstate while talking on the phone or even texting? If so, you have likely witnessed an illegal action because regulations for commercial vehicle drivers note that texting while driving is forbidden. Unfortunately, just because something is against the law doesn't mean that people are going to stop doing it.

Trade and commerce depend on semitrucks, safety is a priority

As trade and commerce continue to thrive across the nation, semitrucks remain one of the primary forms for transporting these goods. The problem that comes into the picture here is that accidents involving semitrucks can be deadly or disastrous. For the surviving victims of these crashes, there are often long roads to recovery.

Don't ignore the severity of a semitruck crash

Semitruck accidents are very serious matters that can't be ignored. If you are involved in a crash, make sure that you learn about your rights about seeking compensation. There isn't any reason why you should be left to cover the financial impact of the crash on your own.

Tanker trucks are important but very dangerous

Truckers have to be very careful as they operate the big rigs that help to carry goods all across this country. It is especially important that they drive safely when they are transporting loads that can shift. These are very common in tanker trucks.

The severity of injuries in semitruck crashes can't be denied

We recently discussed the blind spots that are dangers for people who are driving around semitrucks. Safety isn't something that you can discount if you are on the roads because the injuries you might suffer from one of these big trucks slamming into you can be catastrophic. We know the devastation that can occur to you physically, emotionally and financially when this happens.
