All drivers on the road must be cognitively, mentally and physically able to handle the duties that come with being on the road. A truck driver has to be prepared and trained properly. This is one reason why commercial driver’s licenses are required for driving these large vehicles. Unfortunately, there are some individuals who drive big rigs without the proper training or when they aren’t able to do so safely.
Unsafe truckers can cause serious crashes that lead to innocent parties having catastrophic injuries like those to the brain, spinal cord or internal organs. When this happens, the person is likely going to need extensive medical care. Lengthy hospital stays, intensive therapy and complex medication regimens often come with these types of cases.
