West Palm Beach Truck Accident Lawyer
Time spent on the road can and should be leisurely, without fear of death or of injury. Unfortunately, the reality of the road is that not everyone is going to be paying attention one-hundred percent of the time. Negligence exists, it’s part of human nature. One moment we may be paying attention to the road, another moment may be thinking about something else entirely, and will only be barely paying attention to what’s happening in front of us.
For truck drivers, this is something that can happen after many long hours of driving from state to state. Sleep deprivation, and the constant almost hypnotic view of a road that never seems to change can drive even the most experienced drivers to moments of inattention. A normal inattentive driver can be hazardous, but a truck driver is something that could be downright disastrous.Truck Accident Statistics
