Our law firm stands up for the rights of individuals who were injured in accidents caused by unsafe lane changes and other negligent behavior.
As both trucks and passenger cars are sharing the same roadways, there are specific rules and procedures that should be followed to help keep everyone safe. Commercial trucks have extremely large blind spots, and the tight schedules that many truck drivers are on can cause them to change lanes aggressively for the sake of cutting a few seconds off their route.
Unfortunately, an unsafe lane change can be the cause of a serious and life-changing accident.
Truck drivers are often facing a tight schedule that pushes them to drive dangerously on the road. The need for haste and general impatience may contribute to an unsafe lane change, in addition to driver distractions or fatigue. Since commercial trucks are usually large and carrying a significant amount of heavy cargo, accidents involving them can be devastating.
Truck drivers have a responsibility to do their part in protecting the safety of all drivers on the road, regardless of their deadlines. When they fail to do so, they may find themselves involved in an accident that caused serious injuries to another. Truck accident cases can involve more than just the driver, but also the company, manufacturer, and other parties. Additionally, some trucking companies have hired legal teams that seek to obscure evidence of company and driver liability.
Aggressive driving can entail behaviors that range from speeding over the limit, to tailgating, to weaving in and out of traffic, to failing to stop, to ignoring traffic signs.Learn More
