You deserve assistance after being involved in a truck crash

Has the trucking industry actually become more dangerous for drivers? Some believe so, especially since the economy has improved. With more trucks on the road than in years past, it is more common to see accidents involving big rigs, which can mean serious or fatal injuries for those in the collision.

Part of the reason that so many truck drivers end up in accidents is because of the government loosening regulations. By reducing the safety laws, it means that trucks and their drivers are pushed to the limit. That creates a perfect storm for serious collisions.

Right now, trucks have a limit of hauling 80,000 pounds. If that were to be raised, as some would like Congress to allow, it could mean even deadlier trailers on the roads. Truck drivers could deliver more goods, but it would also mean putting lives at risk.

Others have suggesting allowing longer double trailers, but that also poses a threat to those on the roads. They're already difficult to maneuver at 28 feet long each; Imagine creating rigs as long as 80 feet. They would be nearly impossible to control or stop in an emergency.

Hiring younger drivers is another way the industry is trying to save money, but that also comes at a cost when it comes to safety. Inexperienced drivers are more likely to make mistakes and get into crashes, leading to deaths or injuries.

The trucking industry shouldn't be loosening regulations or making the roads more dangerous for other drivers. If you're injured, you deserve to have someone stand up for you. Our website has more information on the steps to take next.
