We are still waiting for foolproof trucking safety advancements

If you spend any time reading or listening to the news, you have probably heard a lot of buzz about safety advancements in the trucking industry. Like you, we applaud any attempts to reduce truck accidents. However, it is clear that foolproof technologies are still out of reach.

Cities and highways in Oklahoma have their own share of truck accidents, many of them fatal. It leaves our neighbors wondering why there is so much talk about safety technology in trucking and at the same time still so many serious injuries and deaths.

The trucking industry is intensely interested in improving safety. Doing so is good for trucking companies and ordinary citizens alike. The search for foolproof methods of preventing truck accidents will likely continue, but we expect it will be a long time before people outside of the industry will notice a big improvement. In the meantime, we can continue to appreciate the current safety features available to trucking companies while we wait for a foolproof system.

-- Collision mitigation

-- Predictive cruise control

-- Lane departure warning

-- Electronic stability control

-- Camera and recording technology

It is probably wishful thinking to expect a completely foolproof safety system that can prevent all truck accidents. However, we like to hope for the best as we continue to develop legal strategies that help families deal with the worst.

The bottom line is this: Truck accidents are an unfortunate fact of life, to put it mildly. Helping victims find the closure and financial compensation they need in the aftermath of tragedy is why personal injury lawyers exist in the first place. We offer more information and facts about truck accidents on our website..
