Truck v. Pedestrian Accidents
Commercial trucks can present significant dangers for pedestrians. These trucks often have severely-limited visibility -- especially at close range -- and truck drivers who are behind schedule, thinking about the next job, or performing a complex maneuver can easily overlook the risk of hitting a pedestrian.
Truck drivers are often not as experienced or attentive as we would like them to be. Aside from truckers who drive 18-wheelers and other large trucks for a living, most commercial drivers are primarily trained to do something else. Movers, utility workers, construction workers, refuse collectors, tow truck drivers -- these are all people for whom truck driving is secondary to their primary occupation.
All of this means that commercial truck wrecks involving pedestrians are far more common than they should be. It also means that these wrecks are frequently the result of some sort of driving mistake. For pedestrians of all ages, the consequences can be devastating, and it can be critical for accident victims and their loved ones to assert their legal rights.
