Moving Truck Accidents
We see them every day—moving trucks or moving trailers rented to help ordinary people get from one home to the next. While most of us have probably rented one of the these trailers before, we may not have realized how dangerous they can be.
The trucks and trailers rented by national and regional moving companies do not operate like a standard car or truck. Limited rear visibility, decreased speed capacity, decreased maneuverability, increased braking time, considerations of weight and load distribution—these are just a few of the special considerations a driver must take into account when operating one of these moving vehicles.
However, trucks and trailers are rented each day to people with absolutely no training on how to drive them. The rental company often provides no special instruction at all before allowing a driver to leave with a trailer attached to his vehicle. Even if the renter is given a manual or instruction book, there is no requirement that he or she actually reads it. Largely due to inexperienced drivers, moving trucks and trailers are involved in countless accidents each year.
