Drugs & Alcohol Abuse-Related Truck Accidents
Any driver who drinks or uses drugs before getting behind the wheel should be held accountable for any harm they cause. Truck drivers in particular should be held to a higher standard. They are professionals who undergo special training in order to receive commercial drivers’ licenses.
Many times, truck drivers do not get paid unless they are driving. Sometimes, they will take stimulants in order to keep up with unrealistic schedules set by the trucking companies and it will need to be determined if the trucking company’s policy may have contributed to the accident.
It may also be important to investigate if a trucker was over-served at a restaurant, and pursue compensation from the establishment.
