Texting While Trucking Laws

Text messaging increases crash risk by 23% among all drivers, but we’re all put at risk when a truck driver picks up a cell phone. A semi-truck is capable of exponentially greater damage than other motor vehicles. Truck drivers have a tremendous responsibility for the safety of everyone on the road. One moment’s distraction can lead to the lifelong personal injury and financial hardship of others. Commercial truck drivers have no excuse for texting or using another handheld electronic device while on the road.

San Antonio has banned all drivers from texting while driving since 2010. Federal law bans drivers of large commercial trucks from hand-held texting. If a driver is caught texting behind the wheel of a big rig, they can be fined up $2,750. Researchers estimate that when a driver uses a cell phone for texting or otherwise, they are distracted from the road for a minimum of five seconds. Truck drivers already have significant blind spots and difficulty braking quickly. In five seconds, a truck driver can miss a changing traffic light, rear-end or side swipe a car, or strike a vehicle or pedestrian in an intersection.

Proving Truck Driver Negligence

Proving that a truck driver was texting at the time of an accident can be difficult. There are several types of evidence that can successfully prove negligence:

  • Phone records that match the time of outgoing texts with the time of the crash.
  • Truck driver admission on a police report.
  • Eye witness accounts that verify the truck driver was texting when the accident occurred.

Bringing a Claim Against a Texting Truck Driver

Texting while driving a semi truck is classified as distracted driving under the law, and can lead to fatal accidents and serious personal injuries. Truck driver inattention can be more difficult to prove than other causes of accidents, and requires a thorough investigation. Thankfully, with laws in place against texting while driving a large truck, victims have a better chance of receiving just compensation.

Truck driver negligence should not be tolerated. An experienced legal team can gather the necessary evidence to show a phone was being used at the time of collision, proving driver negligence. Contact Trevino Injury Law to pursue damages for medical bills, loss of wages, and personal injury and distress.
