Tractor Trailer and Commercial Vehicles

Tractor Trailers and commercial vehicles pass through Atlanta daily. There are certain requirements commercial vehicle and tractor trailer drivers must comply with in order to operate that vehicle, and any distractions could lead to an accident on the highway. ​The trucking industry is heavily regulated by both federal and state laws. This means commercial truck crashes are often more complex than passenger vehicle accidents. For Example the Department of Motor Carrier Safety requires commercial and 18 wheeler drivers to inspect their commercial vehicle of 18 wheeler before driving on the road

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, common causes of distractions include:

  • Using a cell phone while driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Following too closely
  • Failure to follow traffic signs
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Debris or other items in the roadway
  • Inclement weather, such as rain or ice
  • Unsecured cargo or failure to abide by cargo limits
  • Tire or truck problems, including a tire blowout
  • Driver fatigue

Because of their size, commercial vehicles and tractor trailers can cause devastating and traumatic injuries. Some of the injuries caused by commercial vehicles and tractor trailers include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain Injuries
  • Spinal cord or neck injuries
  • Severe nerve damage
  • Bruises, cuts or burns
  • Severed body parts
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
