Louisville Truck Driver Error & Negligence Attorneys

The size of large trucks and 18-wheelers alone poses a significant threat to Louisville drivers who are operating vehicles that are substantially smaller. While some accidents may be nearly impossible for drivers to avoid—for instance, a truck malfunction or extreme weather conditions—there is almost no excuse for driver error or negligence on Louisville’s roadways. The Louisville truck driver error attorneys at the Sampson Law Firm understand just how devastating accidents caused by truck driver negligence can be for Louisville families.

If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident involving a large truck, our Louisville legal team may be able to help you through this difficult time. We may provide aggressive representation to hold the truck driver financially liable for their negligence or error.

Dangerous Forms of Driver Error & Negligence

While truck drivers are often pressured to meet unrealistic schedules, drivers should do everything they can to protect themselves and other drivers on the road. When Louisville truck drivers engage in any of the following negligent behaviors, other drivers are at significant risk of being involved in a potentially deadly accident:

  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Reckless driving
  • Cell phone use
  • Improperly loaded or secured cargo
  • Failure to check blind spots before switching lanes
  • Driving while drowsy

By holding drivers responsible for their actions in the Louisville area, you can help discourage other Louisville drivers from engaging in negligent or otherwise reckless behaviors.
