Unsafe Lane Changes & Truck Accidents
Just as with any driver on the road, truck drivers have a duty to take reasonable measures to keep others free from preventable harm. As trucks can produce such horrific accidents and serious harm, however, truck drivers are required to exercise the utmost care when navigating their rigs. As demonstrated by the many laws and regulations that specifically apply to truck driver safety, truck accidents are an ever-present and alarming concern. At Nagle & Associates, P.A., North Carolina auto accident lawyers do everything in their power to explore all potential causes and all potentially liable parties of truck accidents in order to ensure that victims collect the full amount of their damages from all available sources.
Unsafe lane changes are dangerous in any form. With massive trucks, indiscriminate lane changing can spell disaster. When it can be shown that truck drivers committed traffic offenses, failed to be aware of their surroundings, or drove negligently in any way, they can be held liable for compensating victims. As the firm’s legal team explores all potential truck accident causes, they also know that improperly trained drivers can commit these types of errors, a situation that can further establish fault on trucking companies that failed to educate their drivers.
