Sources of Liability in Truck Accidents
There are several sources of liability in truck accidents, including:
- Truck braking capability: Trucks can weigh 30 times as much as passenger cars and can require 40 percent more distance to brake safely. These factors are amplified when brakes are poorly maintained.
- Truck driver fatigue: Legally, truck drivers can operate trucks up to 11 hours at a time, but peer-reviewed surveys show that many drivers violate these regulations and work longer hours, increasing the dangers of fatigue.
