Damaged Semi Truck

Intoxicated Truck Drivers

Intoxicated driving is a serious problem in Minnesota, just as it is in the rest of the country. But while we talk often about drunk driving, there is an added dynamic to consider: truck drivers operating their vehicles while under the influence of stimulants.

Our truck accident lawyers have seen too many innocent lives ruined as a result of avoidable truck accidents. And while most truck drivers perform their jobs responsibly, many are placed in impossible positions.

When trucking companies set aggressive, unrealistic delivery schedules, truck drivers are faced with an unfair choice: drive responsibly and miss a deadline or make the deadline by driving recklessly. Many truck drivers attempt to “power through” late night and early morning drives by turning to stimulating drugs.

These stimulants will keep a driver awake, but they will also make the driver edgy and careless while dulling the senses and slowing reaction times. Obviously, this is not ideal when the driver is operating a massive commercial truck. The accidents resulting from this intoxication are serious and often deadly.

Our truck accident lawyers have over 40 years of experience handling serious injury cases, and we’re prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve.

If you’re a Minnesota resident and you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, you should arrange a free consultation with our lawyers. Please contact GoldenbergLaw today for a free consultation.
