Why Truck Drivers May Become Impaired
Sure, there are truck drivers that use alcohol while driving, but it is usually other substances that are detected following an accident. Commercial truck drivers must meet tight turnaround times, meaning that they spend hours in the driver’s seat with only minimal rest. As a result, they are prone to using uppers and other prescription medications to try and stay awake for longer periods of time.
The truck driver in your accident may have been intoxicated with:
- Caffeine pills
- Illicit drugs such as methamphetamines
- Prescription drugs
While the simple answer is that these drivers should not be using such substances, the fact of the matter is that trucking companies may hold them to near-impossible schedules. Our firm can investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident to hold the right people responsible for the damages they caused.
