Driving is a dangerous activity and requires utmost attention when performing the task. Not only do drivers have to watch out for other vehicles on the roadways, but drivers also need to pay attention to people riding bikes, as well as pedestrians and joggers.

With driving comes a great deal of responsibility.

Negligent truck driver held responsible

Truck accidents occur all too frequently on Pennsylvania roadways. The likelihood that a crash will end in serious bodily injury or death is unfortunately high due to the size of the vehicles involved in these types of accidents. Because of the expertise required to drive a truck, all truck drivers have to possess a specific type of license to operate the vehicle: a commercial driver's license, commonly referred to as a CDL. A CDL holds truck drivers to a different, higher standard of driving than the rest of the motorists on the roads. Yet, even with the special knowledge and skills that truck drivers possess, truck accidents still happen. When they do, the results often are devastating.
