Trucking Accidents

Trucks traveling at high speeds with heavy or dangerous cargo could result in a very serious accident. These types of accidents can be ruinous. Accidents involving commercial vehicles and trucks can lead to complex litigation involving businesses, insurance companies, multiple defendants, and federal trucking regulations.

Basic standard of care: A person must use reasonable care in driving a vehicle. Drivers must keep a lookout for pedestrians, obstacles, and other vehicles. They must also control the speed and movement of their vehicles. The failure to use reasonable care in driving a vehicle is negligence. (CACI 700) The duty to use reasonable care does not require the same amount of caution from drivers and pedestrians. While both drivers and pedestrians must be aware that motor vehicles can cause serious injuries, drivers must use more care than pedestrians. (CACI 710)
