We are dedicated to representing the victims of Phoenix truck accident victims in court.
Characteristics of a Drunk Truck Driver
There are many things to worry about when a drunk truck driver is on the road.
These are a few characteristics you should look out for if you believe a truck driver is impaired:
- Difficulty staying in their lane (swerving)
- Making overly wide turns
- Driving on other than designated roadway
- Aggressive driving
- Very slow or high speeds on the highway
- Erratic braking
- Driving into opposing traffic
Liability in a Drunk Truck Driver Accident
Unlike car accidents, several parties can be liable aside from the drunk truck driver. If the trucking company was aware that the driver was drinking, or has a history of drunk driving, they too may be liable under “negligent entrustment.” In order to prove liability, you must testify, collect police officer testimony, gather breathalyzer evidence and interview witnesses. An experienced personal injury lawyer can assist with this entire process
