Was the Truck Driver Under the Influence?

Springfield DUI Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck drivers must spend many hours on the road. Oftentimes, they drive at night when there is little traffic and they can travel faster. However, their work can get menial and even lonely during the evening hours.

As such, some truck drivers turn to alcohol to make the time pass quicker. Unfortunately, this behavior is extremely dangerous for fellow motorists, who may be at great risk for injury in a collision with a commercial truck.

You may be entitled to financial compensation.

Effects of Alcohol on Truckers

Regardless of the type of motor vehicle being operated, drivers should never get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol. Drunkenness impairs an individual’s ability to safely operate an automobile, as the effects of alcohol often impair the motor skills vital to safe driving.

Consumption of alcohol can cause drivers to experience the following dangerous issues:

  • Blurred vision
  • Delayed reaction time
  • Behavioral changes
  • Drowsiness
  • Lack of coordination

Each of these impairments hinders an individual’s ability to drive. For truckers, who drive large vehicles that weigh several tons, intoxication is often a greater issue than it is for drivers of passenger automobiles, as commercial trucks have the potential to cause extremely serious damage to fellow motorists.

Victims of drunk truck drivers should speak with an experienced Springfield truck accident lawyer about their legal rights and options.

If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a truck accident in which a drunk truck driver was at fault, contact Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. at (417) 855-2022 for a free case evaluation.
