Accidents Caused by a Trucker Improperly Changing Lanes

Truck drivers who operate their vehicle aggressively put others at an elevated risk of serious injury, particularly whenever their lane changes become erratic. Now that you or a loved one has been hurt by a truck driver who was erratically changing lanes, you should consider taking legal action to recover compensation for all the pain and suffering that has come to be associated with your injuries.

Improper/Erratic Lane Changes Constitutes Reckless Driving

Truck drivers undergo extensive training before they are ever allowed to get behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler on their own. That being said, truck drivers should know how and when to safely change lanes in any situation.

  • The medical care you or a loved one now require
  • The emotional trauma associated with the accident
  • The property damages associated with that accident
