Signs of a Negligent Truck Driver
Try to remember everything that happened before and after an accident with a big truck. Write it down. Tell it to your lawyer. Think about how the driver was behaving.
- Did you see the driver of the tractor-trailer using a cell phone or other communications device when the accident happened?
- Was the driver obeying all traffic laws?
- Given the weather and road conditions, was he or she driving recklessly?
- Was there any obvious evidence of mechanical failure on the truck before the accident occurred?
- Did the driver seem tired when you got his or her information?
- Did it seem like the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
Make sure to get the driver’s name, the trucking company’s name and the truck’s license number.

And then contact a lawyer before you sign or agree to anything about your compensation for your injuries. Any initial settlement the trucking company and their insurance company sends will favor them, not you. Your attorney can make sure your settlement is fair.
