Broken regulations and laws can lead to semi-truck accidents

The trucking industry is governed by a host of regulations and laws. We covered some of that information last. If you recall, many of these regulations and laws are meant to help keep people who share the roadways with semi-trucks safe. We acknowledge that no innocent motorist should have to deal with an unsafe trucker causing them to suffer injuries.

When regulations and laws are broken, innocent motorists can be injured. There are several reasons why regulations and laws might be broken by a trucker. One of the most common is that the trucker decides to do other things while they drive. In some cases, these other things, such as eating or shaving, might be done while driving in an effort to save time. Trying to communicate with family members and friends while they are on the road might lead truckers to text or talk on the phone while they driver. In all cases, distracted driving can lead to catastrophic accidents.

Trying to make deliveries on time can also cause issues. Truckers who are trying to hurry up to meet times might end up being careless. They might not secure a load properly or they might not drive in a safe manner. They might drive faster than the speed limit. All of those can harm people.

If you have been injured by a semi-truck accident, you might choose to seek compensation for your injuries. Doing so, especially if you are dealing with the insurance company, means you have to document your case. We can help you gather what you need to show your side of the story.
