A Distracted Truck Driver Is An Accident Waiting To Happen

We Hold Truckers And Employers Accountable For The Crashes They Cause

There are few actions more irresponsible than using a cellphone for talking, texting or email while driving a semi. Unfortunately, it is not unusual to see truck drivers with a cellphone in one hand and the steering wheel of a 60,000-pound tractor-trailer in the other.

At Britton Law, we have been representing the victims of negligent truck drivers for more than 25 years. We serve clients in Fayetteville, Raleigh, Wilmington and other North Carolina communities.

North Carolina Cellphone Use Laws For Truck Drivers

In North Carolina, it is illegal for anyone to use a cellphone for texting, email or Internet use while driving. While it is not illegal to talk on a hand-held cellphone while driving, it can still be a factor in determining liability if we can show that the truck driver was talking on a cellphone in the moments leading up to the crash.

Multitasking might be part of many jobs, but it has no place in the cab of a semi. When a truck driver fails to devote his or her full attention to the road, the result can be devastating for people in smaller vehicles.

Along with the driver logbook, truck maintenance records, drug test records and the driver’s past violations, our truck accident law firm often demands the driver’s cellphone records to determine if distracted driving played a role in the accident.
