Truckers shouldn't risk your life by texting while driving

Distracted driving is something that can lead to serious accidents. When a trucker is the one who is driving while distracted, the effects of the accident can be far worse than if a passenger vehicle driver was driving while distracted. When you think about the weight of those semi-trucks and their large size, it is easy to understand why a person in a car or pickup truck wouldn't fare well in an accident.

If you were injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted trucker, you have the right to seek compensation for the injuries you suffered. To put it simply, truckers aren't allowed to do activities like texting while they drive. They can be put out of service or face other penalties if they are found to have been using a hand-held phone while they drive.

A trucker who is texting is 23 times more likely to be involved in an event classified as safety-critical as one who isn't texting. That statistic alone shows how dangerous it is for operators of semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles to drive while they are distracted. We can help you to investigate the accident so that we can determine what caused the trucker to slam into you.

There is never an excuse for your life to be put into danger because of a trucker who is driving in an unsafe manner. We can help you explore your rights for seeking compensation if you were injured in a truck accident. You can look into seeking compensation for medical bills, missed wages and a variety of other expenses.
