Trucking Accident DUI and DWI Attorney
Roughly half a million trucking accidents occur every year in the United States and approximately 10% of those result in fatalities. Some of the main causes of these trucking accidents include:
- Mechanical failures;
- Truck driver fatigue;
- Other driver’s negligence;
- Surface Conditions;
- Truck driver error;
- DUI (Driving Under the Influence);
- DWI (Driving While Intoxicated)
DUIs and DWI Limits
The law classifies a DUI as an impairment caused by any of the following substances:
- Other vapor releasing substance
Any of these substances can seriously impair the mental and physical capabilities of the truck drivers. In fact, absolutely nobody is allowed to legally be behind the wheel of, or in control of, any vehicle while they’re under the influence of any intoxicating substance.
The truth is that every single DUI trucking accident could have been avoided had the truck driver not been impaired prior to getting behind the wheel. In each of these instances, the DUI truck accident victims and their families are entitled to compensation due to their losses. The first step in this process is to consult a trucking accident personal injury lawyer.
