DUI Truck Accidents More Than $175 Million Recovered | Over 30 Years of Experience

Los Angeles DUI Truck Accident Attorney

Accidents Caused by Truckers Who Drink and Drive

It is frighteningly common for truckers to be found driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A truck driver may be abusing stimulants in an attempt to stay alert for extended periods or consuming alcohol or other controlled substances to cope with workplace stresses. Whatever the reason, when intoxicated truckers cause an accident, they are negligent and should be found as such through an injury claim filed against them.

If you were injured by a drunk truck driver, then you should receive full compensation for your injuries and damages. Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation – which is led by the reputable Attorney Scott J. Corwin – can help you understand your legal options and pursue compensation with ease.

You might be owed compensation that helps pay for:

  • Past and future medical treatment costs
  • Lost wages and income
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Pain and suffering

If you do not want to deal with all the details and nuances of your case, like how to calculate those damages fairly, then we do not blame you. Fighting a trucking company and its insurance provider is not simple work. That is why you should leave everything up to us!

Put your truck accident case in good hands. Call our firm at (310) 683-2300 now.

Proving Truck Driver Intoxication

Evidence of drug or alcohol-impaired driving may include breathalyzer test results or blood test results. A field sobriety test may have been administered by law enforcement yielding further evidence of intoxication. It will be important to gather this evidence to support any claim you seek against the truck driver who hit you. If the company knew that the driver had a history of drug or alcohol-impaired driving, then it, too, may be held liable for the accident due to negligent hiring practices.

Dangers of Drunk Truck Driving

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can will cause a truck driver to suffer from:

  • Impaired judgment
  • Slowed reaction time
  • Shaky vehicle control
  • Loss of focus

Just one of these symptoms of impairment makes it impossible for the truck driver to safely operate a vehicle, not to mention that they are in charge of safely driving a semi-truck or 18-wheeler. Truck drivers are held to higher standards because of the great responsibility that comes with operating oversized vehicles and the potential damage they can cause. For example, they can be arrested for driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.04, rather than the typical 0.08. If they neglect this higher standard and put everyone in danger, then it is only right that they pay for any damage they cause.
