Truck accident prevention: A competition for professional drivers

Pennsylvania will play host for a special competition this year. The National Truck Driving Championship will be held in August. This is an annual event to find the best truck drivers in the nation. In order to compete, a driver must be truck accident free for at least one year. 

The competition is a chance for truck drivers to show off the skills they use each day on the road. There are written tests as well as behind-the-wheel events. There are different categories to accommodate different types of trucks, and drivers and fans look forward to cheering on the competitors, as the “cameraderie” between the competitors is a major reason folks look forward to attending. 

Again, in order to compete, a driver must be free of any sort of truck accident for at least one year.  This rule provides incentive for safety for drivers on the road each day. Truck accidents can result in injury or death, and safety is paramount. 

When a person is injured in a Pennsylvania truck accident, he or she can suffer serious injury that can last a lifetime. A victim could be saddled with medical bills, physical rehabilitation costs, and/or loss of wages due to inability to work because of injury. A victim may seek to hold the party responsible for the crash accountable in a court of law. An experienced attorney can provide assistance with this process. In some cases, a victim may be entitled to a monetary award that can help compensate for the injuries he or she suffered.
