Drunk / Drugged Driving Accidents
Truck drivers have to undergo special training in order to earn licensure to operate a commercial vehicle. While it may seem obvious, and while the law is clear when it comes to intoxicated driving, some drivers still choose to ignore the law and the safety of others by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sometimes, a driver may choose to drive under the influence of a chemical stimulant in order to stay awake longer and cover more distance without taking a rest break. Other times, drivers may drive under the influence of alcohol to support an ongoing dependency or out of boredom. In any case, the damage these drivers can cause can be devastating. Because trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and are so massive in size, if they collide with smaller vehicles, it is often the passenger vehicles that suffer the most damage.
Intoxicated drivers injure and kill hundreds of people each year and should be held accountable for the damage they cause.
