Despite strict regulations, truckers are still main cause of truck accidents

We all know that airline pilots are subject to strictly enforced regulations regarding training, qualifications, maximum work time, compulsory rest periods, alcohol and drug use, etc. For many years the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has enforced similar rules for truckers, aware of the terrible damages that could result from a truck driver's poor judgment or loss of control.

Truck safety in Colorado and on America's highways has improved over the years, even if 2008 figures still show that 4,229 people have died and some 90,000 people have been injured in truck accidents. Facing these impressive numbers, Coloradans may have a right to know what causes so many accidents.

A recent study conducted by the FMCSA over a three year period has shown that fifty-five percent of all accidents involving a truck were caused by the truck. More to the point, forty-eight percent of all truck accidents were caused by a truck driver error, whether the truck driver fell asleep, lost consciousness, was distracted or inattentive, was speeding, tailgated or lost control.

Having passionately and successfully defended the rights of hundreds of Colorado victims of truck accidents, attorney Robert J. Anderson knows how to tackle transport companies and their insurers when claiming for just and full compensation.
