Every driver on the road, no matter what vehicle they’re operating, has a responsibility to abide by the established traffic laws and operate their vehicle in a manner that could not potentially harm others. There are negligent drivers, however, who act as though they are above the law by disobeying the set speed limit.
Speeding can result in catastrophic consequences, especially when a commercial truck is involved. Injuries or fatalities are likely when a smaller passenger vehicle collides with a tractor-trailer. Victims of truck accidents have the right to pursue legal action in an attempt to seek compensation for the damages incurred as a result of the negligent trucker’s actions.
