Inadequate Driver Training – Orlando Truck Accidents
Due to the enormous size of most semi-trucks, even a low-impact trucking accident can result in totaled vehicles, catastrophic personal injury, and even wrongful death. In fact, despite accounting for just 3 percent of all registered vehicles on our nation’s roadways, trucks account for 8 percent of all vehicles involved in fatal auto accidents. Furthermore, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that one out of eight traffic fatalities result from a collision involving a truck.

Inadequate Driver Training
It is important to know that drivers of commercial vehicles and semi-tractor trailers are supposed to have special training and education. To reduce the risk of trucking accidents, companies are responsible for hiring drivers that meet a number of federal and state requirements.
Inadequate driver training dramatically increases the propensity for trucking accidents, because inexperienced drivers may be less able to avoid collisions. Undertrained drivers may be less prepared to respond in the event of poor weather or mechanical failure. Furthermore, experience is required to maintain control around curves, steep downgrades, and other instances where detailed knowledge is required.
