Do You Believe Your Accident Was Caused by a Speeding Truck Driver?
Due to its sheer weight and size, a speeding semi tractor-trailer truck poses a much greater risk in a traffic accident than a speeding passenger automobile. Because it has so much momentum, eighteen-wheeler trucks, when operated at unsafe speeds, can potentially cause rollover accidents, major collisions, or other types of accidents. Not only does speeding increase the risk of a crash, it also reduces the amount of time a person has to try to avoid crash. At higher speeds, a truck crash has the potential to cause catastrophic damage and injury. In fact, even small increases in speed can actually double the force of impact in a crash.
Trucking companies may share part of the blame for the negligence of their truck drivers. Unsafe schedules and timetables may entice drivers to speed in order to make mileage goals and earn additional money. It is also important to know the history and driving record of the driver involved in the crash, and whether or not the trucking company hired and retained responsible truck drivers.
