Disobeying Safety Procedures

Professional truck drivers are held to high standards, represented by the qualifications they must meet to obtain a commercial driver's license. Among their responsibilities is following all safety procedures while operating their big rig trucks in order to ensure the safety of the motorists they share our roads with.

When truck drivers fail to observe safety procedures, they place everyone else on the road at risk and the results can be tragic. Catastrophic injuries change the lives of families forever and result in damages such as medical expenses, rehabilitation and home care costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Safety Procedures Are Vital To Safe Big Rig Driving

The safety procedures that are in place for truck drivers are simple but critical to protecting passenger vehicles from collisions with big rig trucks. For example, it is recommended that truck drivers apply their brakes slowly and gradually in order to preserve their braking ability and avoid a runaway truck situation. The difference between a routine stop and a devastating accident can be as simple as how a truck driver applies the vehicle's brakes.

When truck drivers disobey safety procedures, our team — led by attorney David Rosenthal — has the investigative skills to identify liability and pursue compensation from all available sources. We will not rest until you receive a verdict or settlement that provides for your current and future needs.
