Dangers of Trucking Accidents
Because of their size, large commercial trucks are significantly more difficult to operate and control compared to typical passenger automobiles. Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, and other kinds of commercial trucks can weigh up to 20+ times the weight of most passenger autos. With these kinds of ratios, no matter how good of an automobile driver someone is, they usually have no defense against an out of control commercial truck.
The sooner you call a lawyer after a Reston, VA trucking accident, the sooner they may be able to start defending your and your loved ones’ rights.
A few decades ago, commercial trucking companies and drivers came under harsh scrutiny for not following the laws and regulations for safely driving large commercial trucks. It was found that drivers regularly exceeded their maximum number of driving hours allowed and that many drivers were doing drugs while driving in order to stay awake (and for other reasons.) This led to the government cracking down on trucking companies and their tightening up regulations to try to make America’s highways safer.
Even though the commercial trucking industry has gotten better about their safety practices and enforcing them, accidents that cause great damage, injury, and oftentimes, loss of life, are common.
