List of Common Orlando Truck Driver Errors

Was Truck Driver Error to Blame for Your Injury?Truck accident science is actually a relatively young field, but surveys and fieldwork have helped authorities categorize the most common critical errors drivers make.

These include:

Truck driver error due to driving too fast / driving recklessly.

  • Truckers who complete their routes quickly get more work and thus get more money. This compensation system incentivizes truckers to speed. When they speed, they do not react as effectively to events on the road. Thus, they are more likely to get into serious injury crashes.

Truck driver error due to alcohol, illegal drug, prescription drug use, or supplement use.

  • Some truckers are addicted to controlled substances. Others just take drugs to complete their routes faster and/or to deal with boredom or lack of companionship.
  • Obviously, drinking and driving can be dangerous. But it can also be dangerous to drink tons of caffeine and then “crash” (figuratively) while behind the wheel. Likewise, truckers who drink tons of soda and refined carbohydrates may get into trouble because of the blood sugars swings induced by these foods. A hypoglycemic episode can slow reaction time; the difference between a fatal crash and a scary “near miss” often comes down to hundredths of a second in timing.

Truck driver error as a result of bad training and/or lack of familiarity with the roads or with the vehicle.

  • In Florida, truckers must pass stringent requirements to do their work. If a trucker did not receive the proper training – or did not learn how to drive a particular vehicle safely – you can build an effective case for liability.

Truck driver error due to general failure to drive safely.

  • Failure to look at a blind spot before turning; failure to observe highway signage; failure to load or inspect the vehicle correctly; other types of “work a day” oversights or omissions can lead to dangerous, life changing (or even life ending) consequences.
