Lombard personal injury lawyerTruck accidents caused by inexperienced drivers are a significant concern on the nation’s roads. This issue has become even more alarming given the recent data showing that the United States is facing a truck driver shortage. According to a recent study, the country needs to employ more than 80,000 truck drivers this year to compensate for the current shortage. By 2030, it is estimated that the shortage will spike to more than 160,000 drivers. This shortage has led to hiring inexperienced drivers who lack the training to operate these massive vehicles, resulting in more truck accidents and loss of life.
