Truck Driver Safety in Palm Springs, CA

When truck drivers are out on the road making deliveries or transporting goods, it is very important that they drive responsibly. It is also imperative that they put safety first. If truck drivers are not safe or fail to take precautions, they may cause a truck accident.

While many people may think that truck accidents are not that common, the truth is that these accidents occur quite frequently in the state of California. One of the leading causes of truck accidents happens to be truck driver negligence, which is why truck drivers should always try to be safe while operating massive commercial trucks, big rigs, 18 wheelers and delivery trucks.

Below are a few truck driver safety tips that have been provided by the talented legal team at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.:

  • Truck drivers should never drive while fatigued. The truth is, many truck drivers have to work long shifts, which can make them tired. When people are fatigued, their judgment is impaired and they cannot react as quickly or remain as alert. Being tired and having impaired judgment is a perfect recipe for causing a major truck accident, which is why truck drivers should stay off the road when they are fatigued.
  • Truck drivers should take much needed breaks. All too often, in order to meet their delivery times, truck drivers will skip their breaks. This is never a good idea as truck drivers need to rest after driving for long periods of time.
  • Truck drivers should never drink before operating their vehicles. Driving under the influence is not only negligent, but also illegal, and can lead to catastrophic accidents.
  • Truck drivers should remain aware of other drivers and their surroundings. By staying alert, truck drivers can respond faster to situations, which may help them avoid accidents.

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”
