Midland Truck Driver Negligence
We all get that feeling of insecurity when driving next to a semi truck. The instinct is to get away from them as fast as you can in hopes that you don't have to deal with another one in the future. Unfortunately, there are over 5 million semis out there. This makes your chances of seeing another semi truck, just like the one you tried desperately to separate yourself from, extremely likely. There is good reason behind this feeling of anxiety. There are over 500,000 truck driving related accidents a year. If these accidents happen to be fatal, the cost is well around $3 million in damages. These semi trucks have huge blind spots, making it more difficult to see the most common cars on the road. That being said, some of these drivers continue to drive negligent even with this handicap. If you live in Midland, then you definitely understand the anxiety of driving next to these massive trucks, and as I’m sure you know, Midland 18 wheeler accidents are far too common.
