Accident with a Distracted Truck Driver? How to Hold Them Accountable:

Comments Off

Do you think the truck driver was distracted, and that’s what caused the accident?

Today I’m going to give you some answers to questions you may have after your accident with a truck driver who may have been using a cell phone at the time.


truck accidentYou may be a little bit confused right now. You may be asking yourself, “Why did this happen to me?”. The truck that you had the accident with didn’t seem right from the beginning. Maybe the truck was swerving all over the road before it hit you, or maybe it turned right into you instead of waiting until you passed – and you have reason to believe the truck driver may have been distracted at the time of your accident. It’s possible he was texting and driving. There are many possible causes of your truck accident that could lead to the truck driver or trucking company being at fault, and it’s time to get to the bottom of this.

Truck accident investigation

The big trucking and insurance companies have tons of money and teams of investigators and lawyers who will be working for them 24/7 right after your truck accident trying to find any evidence they can to weaken your case – you should have an army on your side too. A truck accident lawyer can use his/her own investigators and experts to get to the bottom of what happened to you and why. Maybe the truck driver was distracted; maybe he was under the influence, poorly trained, or maybe even just tired. A good truck accident lawyer may just be able to figure it out, and get you the money you need to heal.

Wait until you hear these truck accident stats:

  • Cell phones and texting have shown to be major causes of truck accidents.
  • Did you know that a truck driver texting or talking on a cell phone is 23.2 times more likely to get into an accident than one who is not, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration?
