Truckers are often fatigued, breaking the speed limit or carrying too heavy a load. (or all three!) Often it is the trucking company that encourages the driver to push the limits for temporary gain. There is simply too much at stake when you consider the damage that a huge 18-wheeler can do. If you feel you have been injured by the negligence of another driver, you may need to speak with an attorney to protect your rights. The law may provide a remedy in your situation.
