Aggressive Driving by Truck Drivers

While all accidents are dangerous, accidents involving 18-wheelers are almost always catastrophic. Although some of these accidents are unavoidable, many are caused by the aggressive actions of a reckless truck driver. When truck drivers engage in dangerous driving behaviors, innocent and unsuspecting accident victims can be left to deal with serious injuries, extensive medical bills, and lost wages.

Examples of Aggressive Driving Behaviors

Many different driving behaviors can qualify as aggressive, including:

  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Suddenly slamming on brakes
  • Disregarding traffic signs or signals
  • Refusing to check “no zones” or blind spots before changing lanes
  • Failing to yield
  • Cutting off other drivers

Truck drivers have an enormous responsibility when operating such massive vehicles. Unfortunately, when they disregard this responsibility, dangerous accidents can occur. When truck drivers perform these actions, they not only put themselves in danger, but all other motorists on the road around them, as well. With such potentially serious consequences, it is often necessary for a victim to take legal action against the responsible party to receive the compensation they may be entitled to. However, taking on truck drivers alone can be nearly impossible, making the help of an experienced attorney essential.
