Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Intoxication
Just as with other vehicles, intoxicated drivers of large trucks are horribly dangerous and can cause terrible injuries in a crash. Truck drivers should be held to an even higher standard than auto drivers because of the dangerous consequences. An intoxicated big rig driver is playing Russian roulette with the rest of the folks on the road. Whether the result of the consumption of alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs or other intoxicating substances, the consequences are often the same. Just because somebody is trained to drive a big rig does not mean that they have not violated the law by doing so while intoxicated.
An intoxicated driver not only breaks the law but also subjects themselves (and possibly their employer) to the imposition of punitive damages being awarded to their victims in the event of a crash.
