What is truck driver fatigue?

Accidents involving a semi or another type of large truck happen for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes, a collision occurs because a truck driver was driving too fast, while others are caused by alcohol or drug use. Having said that, truck driver fatigue is a major problem in the trucking industry and it is important for everyone on the road to understand the risks that come with driving while dangerously tired in Richmond, and cities across the entire state of Kentucky.

What are your responsibilities after a semi crash?

After a crash with a semi, you may choose to seek recompense for medical expenses or vehicle damage from the commercial carrier involved. First, however, you and the truck driver accountable for the crash both have some responsibilities at the scene of the accident under Kentucky law.

What causes most truck accidents?

If you regularly drive a truck in Kentucky, you may think that you do not need to understand why truck accidents occur in order to do your job. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute says that one of the best ways to avoid a collision is to know the most common causes.
