Truck Driver Negligence and Your Personal Injury Claim (Part B)

Role of Truck Driver Negligence in a West Virginia Truck Accident

Every driver who shares the road with others has an obligation to drive in a responsible manner, exercising caution and care. Truck drivers must operate their vehicle that in the safest manner possible. When they don't, and truck driver negligence is to blame, a West Virginia truck accident could result.

This is why trucks have their own federally mandated driving and operating regulations in addition to the traffic laws that passenger cars follow. When a tractor trailer weighing 30 tons collides with a small car or motorcycle, the damage is often devastating. When truck drivers ignore these important safety regulations and a serious accident results, they can and should be held liable.

Large trucks such as 18-wheelers are required to carry significantly more insurance in order to operate than passenger cars due to the tremendous costs associated with a truck accident injury or fatality.
