Truck Driver Error In St. Paul
Government and private organizations have undertaken many studies into the causes of truck accidents. Time and again, these studies yield the same results: truck drivers’ errors are the most common cause of crashes involving commercial vehicles. Critical truck driver errors may include:
- Failing to make sure that trucks are loaded correctly
- Failing to inspect truck equipment mechanics and loads before setting out on the road
- Failing to verify that lights and reflectors are in place and functioning properly
- Driving while fatigued, without enough sleep
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Committing traffic violations such as speeding and illegal lane changes
At Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., we never assume that we know what caused a truck accident until an investigation is complete. We often work with accident reconstruction specialists who help us zero in on elements of negligence. Examining a truck driver’s logbook often uncovers shortcuts or omissions that apparently caused or contributed to a truck accident. Examining damaged vehicles is also valuable for purposes of determining the cause of an accident.
