Truck drivers have responsibilities imposed under state law as well as under federal law. The duties that a professional trucker has are more extensive than the responsibilities of a typical motorist because trucks are more difficult to drive and because truck crashes can be much more dangerous than typical accidents involving passenger vehicles only.
It is important for victims of truck crashes to understand truck driver responsibilities. When a trucker fails to live up to all his obligations, the truck driver may be considered negligent under California law.
