Check company schedules after a truck accident

A truck accident in Tennessee can happen for many reasons. The driver could be speeding, driving recklessly, or driving while he or she is very tired. All of these things can cause the accident directly, but there may be another cause that is lurking in the background: the schedule that the trucking company gave to that driver.

Trucking companies are paid based on how much they can move. This means that having drivers on the road as much as possible is beneficial to the bottom line. It also helps drivers earn more, which is done on purpose so that they'll want to stick to these schedules. However, the schedule may actually be unrealistic and impossible to fulfill within the confines of the law.

If a driver knows that he or she is going to be late, that can be the real reason that the driver is speeding. Drivers may also recklessly pass other vehicles, not take the time to check their mirrors and blind spots, or try to hurry other traffic along by tailgating. If they are really running behind, drivers may also be more susceptible to road rage when they get caught in traffic.

All of this could come back to the schedule. Drivers may not want to drive in an illegal and dangerous fashion, but they could feel compelled to, like they have no choice if they are going to do what they're being ordered to do.
