Common Types of Truck Driver Error Accidents in Missouri

The truth is that most traffic accidents are preventable and caused in large part by driver error. The U.S. Department of Transportation has safety regulations that drivers are required to follow. If someone is operating a motor vehicle and is negligent when doing so, the driver could face severe consequences such as jail time, suspension or revocation of their driver’s license, fines and fees, and other penalties for violating motor vehicle safety standards. The penalties for negligent truck drivers are similar, but they could face the loss of their job. Despite the consequences in place for negligent driving, the most common types of truck driver error accidents are:

  • Distracted Drivingtexting while driving, changing the radio, talking to someone, and other distractions that take away attention off the road
  • Speeding – commercial trucks can take 20-40 times longer than the average passenger vehicle to come to a complete stop. If a truck driver is speeding and doesn’t have enough time to avoid a stalled driver or obstruction in the road, they could cause an accident
  • Driver Fatigue – truck drivers are often on the road for days and weeks at a time, and could be required to work 70 straight hours in a row. CDL drivers must follow federal and state trucking regulations, which state that drivers must avoid driving while fatigued, but accidents caused by driver fatigue are fairly common
  • Driving Under the Influence – according to a study that examined drugs and alcohol use in truck drivers, more than 90% of drivers said that they had drank on the job, while 82.5% admitted to using amphetamines to stay awake while on the road
  • Driver Inexperience – if a truck driver is inexperienced, they might not properly maintain their vehicle, fail to use proper safety signals, or not understand other basic truck safety regulations. If an inexperienced truck driver doesn’t follow truck safety protocol to a tee, this could cause a crash

If you are in a truck accident caused by driver error, you could be eligible to recover compensation. An experienced St. Louis Truck Driver Error Accident Lawyer can analyze your case, determine its strengths and weaknesses, and create a personalized plan to recover damages for your pain and suffering caused by another’s negligence.
