Collecting necessary compensation following a truck crash

Motorists in Massachusetts share the roads with a variety of vehicles. While this is commonplace, it is not always easy for drivers to share the road with large commercial trucks. While semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks are necessary vehicles to get goods and shipments to and from their intended destinations, it is often difficult to reduce negligent truck drivers on the roads and thus reduce and prevent truck accidents.

Distracted truck drivers and the risks and dangers they pose

As a previous post highlighted, distracted driving is a serious problem on roadways in Massachusetts and elsewhere. While this form of reckless driving is the cause of millions of car accidents each year, it is also the cause of serious truck accidents throughout the nation. While federal trucking regulations are passed to reduce and even penalize distracted truck drivers, this unfortunately does not prevent these types of collisions from occurring.

What are the statistics when it comes to distracted driving?

Everyday, motorists are faced with complex issues when they get behind the wheel of their vehicle. While drivers in Massachusetts understand the dangers associated with distracted driving, it becomes more and more challenging to put the phone down while they are operating a motor vehicle. With the constant advancements in technology, travelers on the roadway do not only have to worry about drivers being distracted while talking and texting on their phone. Now there is constant access to email, social media and endless applications that tend to keep a drivers attention more than the road before them does.

The weather was finally turning around and the forecast called for a clear weekend, cold but sunny. Sunday would be a good day to take the bike out for a nice afternoon ride. You did your maintenance checks on Saturday and topped off the gas tank. While everyone else would be inside watching the Super Bowl, you would be cruising through the countryside.

Everyday, residents in Massachusetts travel in vehicles to get from one place to another. In some cases, individuals must operate a motor vehicle for their job. This can create risks, especially since driving includes many hazards. When drivers are not attentive or follow the rules of the road, they increase the chances of causing a car accident. This could result in serious injuries or even fatalities.
