Distracted trucking is an avoidable cause of semi truck crashes. These truckers made a decision to do something other than focus on the road and now you are left paying the consequences for their choice. The injury you suffered might be one that affects you for the rest of your life. This harrowing thought is one that might spur you to take action.
Every driver should know that paying attention to the road is crucial. Truckers aren't any exception to that concept. For this reason, the federal government has taken proactive steps to help prevent truckers from driving distracted. Truckers who opt to use cellphones, for example, are subject to being taken out of service, fined or being issued disqualifications.
A car or truck accident can be a traumatic occurrence for anyone. During serious accidents, your body itself is put under a lot of stress. First, it goes through a high-level fight or flight response that triggers adrenaline and can cause temporary physical changes in the body. Second, you could experience an injury that damaged your body and requires long recovery, which can be an emotional and stressful time.
