Truck Driver Error / Negligence
The large commercial trucks that transport goods and products across the country are fixtures of our roadways and driving experiences. However, these drivers have a serious responsibility to drive safely, as the size of their vehicles makes others far more vulnerable to injury or death in the event of an accident. Truck driver negligence happens when a truck operator drives recklessly or acts irresponsibly, leading to accidents and the serious injury of other vehicle occupants.
The Massachusetts truck driver negligence lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, understand that errors committed by a truck driver can result in devastating effects for victims and their families. Our legal team is dedicated to advocating for those who have been adversely affected by truck driver negligence or error and help our clients pursue the financial compensation they need to recover from their losses.
Examples of Truck Driver Negligence
Truck driver negligence refers to behavior that endangers the safety of others on the road. Error by a truck driver is particularly dangerous due to the size of the vehicle and the seriously damaging effects it can have on other cars and passengers. Negligence has occurred if a driver has committed one of these actions:
- Failure to Signal Turns
- Aggressive Driving
- Driving with Overweight Load
- Driving During Adverse Conditions
All of these circumstances, although not an exhaustive list, could be considered truck driver negligence in Massachusetts. If you have been involved in such an accident through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation from the negligent driver or his/her company. If you are uncertain whether or not your case would qualify, contact the Massachusetts truck driver error attorneys at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP.
