Some of the Causes of Texas Truck Accidents
Every truck accident is different, and there are countless different causes of trucking accidents in Texas. Some of the more common causes of Texas truck accidents include:
Fatigue / Falling Asleep
Improper loading / Overloading
Unsafe lane changes
Driver use of amphetamines / alcohol
Failure to follow FMCSA regulations
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has established rules and regulations governing the trucking industry. These rules include “hours of service” regulations that dictate how many hours a trucker may operate a truck without taking a rest. At our firm, we frequently consult with FMCSA safety experts to determine if a trucker violated safety regulations in your accident.
Who is Responsible?
It is important to remember that the trucking company will vigorously defend their case. Most trucking companies have investigators retained who will immediately investigate an accident after it happens. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after a Texas truck accident who will determine the cause of the accident and who was at fault. You may have a claim against numerous parties, including the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the truck or trailer, the shipping company, the manufacturer of the truck or trailer, and any other person or company who contributed to the accident.
