Las Vegas Truck Driver Error Lawyer

truck driver errorTruck driver errors are the primary cause of hundreds of truck accidents in the United States. Large-truck accidents occur each year in the vicinity of Las Vegas and some of these accidents are due to truck driver errors. The law firm of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith represents the victims of truck accidents – pedestrians, the drivers and passengers of other vehicles and other truck drivers.

Errors Result in Injuries and Fatalities

Drug use, truck driver fatigue, inattention, aggressive driving, and following too closely are examples of truck driver errors that may result in severe injuries and fatalities, more often among the drivers of smaller vehicles in the collisions than among the drivers of large (over 10,000-pound) trucks.

Contributing Factors

Many types of truck driver errors are studied by traffic safety experts. In a 2005 study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the following are the major contributing factors to truck driver errors:

  • Prescription drug use
  • Traveling too fast for conditions
  • Unfamiliar with roadway
  • Over-the-counter drug use
  • Inadequate surveillance
  • Fatigue
  • Under work-related pressure
  • Illegal maneuver
  • Inattention
  • External distraction factors
  • Inadequate evasive action
  • Aggressive driving behavior (tailgating, weaving, other)
  • Unfamiliar with vehicle
  • Following too closely
  • False assumption of other road users’ actions

Victims of Truck Driver Errors

Every year, more than 5,000 people are killed in truck crashes in the U.S. and many thousands more are injured. These crashes can forever alter the life of an individual and his or her family. The medical bills alone can be devastating. Loss of future income, loss of support of a loved one and the sheer pain and suffering can overwhelm the injured and family members.
