What You Need to Know About the Everett Truck Accident

Truck accidents are relatively common in our area. According to the Washington Department of Motor Vehicles Crash Data Portal, approximately 537 accidents occurred in Snohomish County in 2021. They occur for several reasons, often due to negligence by a truck operator.

Truck drivers can cause accidents if they engage in common negligent motorist behavior, such as speeding or drunk driving. Drowsy driving, in particular, is common among truckers.

Driving a truck when you’re too tired to operate such a complex and large vehicle safely is extremely dangerous. Thus, several laws regulate how much time truck drivers can spend on the road before taking breaks. However, according to reports from truckers themselves, they often feel intense pressure to adhere to strict schedules. This may cause them to skip breaks even if doing so could put both themselves and those with whom they share the road at risk of potential injury.

How a Everett Truck Accident Attorney Can Help You Pursue Compensation
