Truck Driver Drug Use

Just like alcohol use, drug use among truck drivers is a problem. In fact, drug use is more prominent in truck drivers than alcohol use. Statistics from a study completed are showing that 12.5% of fatal truck accidents are caused by drivers who used marijuana.

With the long hours truckers spend on the road, they oftentimes try to find new ways to stay awake behind the wheel. Because of this, methamphetamine has become a very popular drug among truck drivers. In fact, the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) released a report stating that 17 out of 20 truck drivers said that methamphetamine is relatively easy to get at truck stops.

Truck drivers, as well as the trucking company, are responsible for public safety and the safe operation of trucks on our roadways. Even though more strick laws are being passed, a few cases fall through the cracks. Accidents caused by truck driver drug use can have catastrophic results. These accidents will cause serious injuries and even death. The victim's and their families will have new obstacles to face because of the irresponsible decisions truck drivers make when they decide to use drugs while on shift.

The Florida truck accident attorneys at Porter & Korvick would like to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries or loss of a loved one.
