Sharing the roads with trucks is not always the easiest task. Their very presence on the highways can be unsettling for the average motorist and when they’re involved in a collision, the damage to person and property can be significant.
Truck drivers operate under the same set of rules as other motorists, but by virtue of their vehicles size, weight, and speed, they have a special duty to observe rules of safety. When they breach that duty by operating their vehicles without sufficient sleep and rest, with excessive speed, improper maintenance, or simple disregard for the safety of others, they must be held accountable for any harm they cause as a result of their negligence.
