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.

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon!

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

  • 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.”
