If you or a loved one suffered severe or fatal injuries in a truck accident, compensation may be available. To learn more about your legal rights and how they can be protected, contact a DeKalb County accident lawyer for help. 

Truck driver negligence comes in many forms, including unsafe driving. There are certain types of dangerous driving that are more common with truck drivers. 

Some types of unsafe driving that can cause a truck accident include: 

  • following the vehicle in front too closely;
  • swerving to the outside of the designated lanes;
  • not yielding the right of way;
  • failure to adjust driving according to weather conditions;
  • driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol; and
  • aggressive driving. 

Any action that is careless or reckless could be a potential cause for a truck accident. It could also lead to the driver being held liable for your injuries. 

Unfortunately, when you are involved in a truck accident, it is often catastrophic. You may be entitled to receive compensation for the physical and emotional injuries you have suffered.
