Is It Possible To Avoid Truck Accidents?

Safety is no accident.

Accidents can always happen. No matter how safe you are, accidents can still occur. They are not 100 percent unavoidable. Even the most careful and conscientious of people have accidents.

When you’re driving an 18 wheeler filled with technology, mechanics and systems, there is always a potential for something to fail or not work correctly. Even the most-seasoned and careful truck drivers can get into an accident.

“An accident won’t arrive with a bell on its neck.” –Finnish Proverb

Even though accidents can always happen, there are steps you can take to try to prevent a truck accident.

Step 1 – Avoid Distractions – Distractions happen to everyone; however, it’s important to put away anything that could be a potential distraction. A significant part of this step is becoming self-aware of what triggers you to be distracted the most. For example, if you are tempted to glance at your phone when a text message dings on your phone, put it on silence.

Step 2 – Allow Adequate Space – You can reduce your potential for risk if you give yourself plenty of space while driving. You can accomplish this by leaving at least one second for every 10 feet of your vehicle length at a speed of 40 mph. For speeds over 40 mph, you need to allow at least one more second. The Large Truck Crash Causation Study reported that 5 percent of truck crashes happened when the driver was following a car too closely.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
