Distractions On Georgia’s Roadways
While any distracted driver is a danger to other vehicles on the road, distracted truck drivers have the potential to do even more damage. Trucking accidents usually result in more damage and more serious injuries, and these cases can be especially legally complex because businesses are involved.
At Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert, & Prieto, LLC, we have more than two decades of experience protecting the victims of motor vehicle accidents. We will hold distracted drivers responsible for their actions and work to ensure that you have the financial and medical support you need in the aftermath of your accident.
When Wandering Attention Results in Accidents
Whether they are working within legal regulations or are operating outside legal requirements, distracted commercial truckers are a danger to others on the roadways. Causes of truck driver distraction can include:
- Electronics including mobile phones, GPS units and electronic logging devices
- Cognitive distractions including daydreaming or driver fatigue
- Drinking or eating
- Roadside distractions including landmarks and existing accidents
When you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a distracted trucker, the results can be catastrophic. Working with an attorney can help you get the financial and medical support you need to recover after that accident.
