Massachusetts Truck Crash Lawyers
Truckers are held to exacting standards. Truckers must have a valid commercial driver's license, abide by strict federal trucking regulations and take other critical measures to drive safely. The reason for such accountability is obvious; semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles have the capacity to cause tremendous devastation. Given the size and weight of such vehicles, tractor trailer accidents often cause serious and even fatal injuries.
Despite strict laws and regulations, trucking accidents are still far too common. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 17,000 people were injured in large truck accidents in 2009. A significant number of those injuries were the result of truck driver negligence, including
- Truck driver fatigue
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Unsecured loads
- Weight violations
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions
