Distracted driving is becoming one of the top threats on our roads. Any form of distraction, from texting and other cellphone use to eating and momentarily taking one’s hands off the wheel, presents a threat. When driving an 18-wheeler or other large commercial truck, distracted driving can be deadly.A recent study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found that distracted truck driving was a factor in 71 percent of all truck driving accidents. This is unacceptable. Nobody should pay the consequences of a truck driver’s negligence. At Davis Law Firm, our highly qualified lawyers know how to uncover the causes of truck accidents. We are committed to helping accident victims get the maximum compensation available for their injuries.

Holding Negligent Truckers and Distracted Truck Drivers Accountable

To prevent distracted truck driving accidents, the federal government enacted rules that prohibit commercial motor vehicle drivers from dialing, writing or reading texts using mobile phones. Rules are only good as long as they are followed and any activity that takes a driver’s eyes off the road has the potential to cause a fatal accident.

When a truck driver brakes suddenly after a momentary distraction, the truck’s momentum could cause the following kinds of trucking accidents:

  • Jackknife accidents
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Sideswipe accidents
  • T-bone accidents
  • Underride accidents
  • Lost loads

The attorneys at Davis Law Firm are committed to holding negligent truckers accountable. Even when truck drivers won’t admit that they were texting behind the wheel, we have ways of proving the truth. We gather cellphone records, interview witnesses and work with experts such as accident investigators and reconstructionists. We also look at the driver’s record and the training the trucking company provided.
