Truck Driver Errors
When driving, every 18-wheeler driver has to both make sure he or she follows all traffic regulations and uses good judgment, ensuring that they drive safely on the road. With such a large piece of machinery under their operation, truck drivers cannot afford to make driving errors that stem from negligence. Sadly, such errors do occur regularly, involving innocent San Diego drivers in accidents. At Ritter & Associates, we know being involved in such an accident can be extremely devastating, but want victims to know that they may be due financial compensation as a result.
Examples of Truck Driver Errors
There are many ways that a truck driver can be negligent or reckless, and this negligence and recklessness can manifest itself in critical errors made by a truck driver. Four examples of common truck driver errors include:
- Driving in poor weather / adverse conditions
- Failing to use turn signals
- Driving aggressively
- Driving with too much weight / an overweight load
All of these actions are dangerous and can be considered a truck driver error when filing a personal injury claim against them in the event that their actions cause an accident.
