Be prepared to claim if another driver causes you to crash

The roads of Texas are used by a huge number of truck drivers every year. Often these drivers have had to travel long distances in unfamiliar territory and potentially unfavorable weather conditions. They may be fatigued and their loads can be heavy and even hazardous. It is a huge amount of responsibility, so truck drivers are often held to higher driving standards. Unfortunately, they do not always meet these standards.

Any number of issues can lead to a truck crash. Some are caused by drivers speeding or driving while intoxicated. In other cases it is down to truck drivers simply not being able to see other vehicles as they are obscured by the truck?s blind spot. The list does not end there. If a truck has been improperly maintained, its load is not adequately secured, or the driver has not received sufficient training, this can also lead to disaster.

Sadly, when these incidents occur, they are often devastating. The sheer size of a truck alone can cause massive damage. This is increased dramatically if the load is hazardous and escapes from storage during the crash. Victims could face serious, long-term injuries, permanent disability or even death.

If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, our page on truck crashes may have some of the information you need. You should not have to pay the price for another driver?s negligence or that of the company they work for. An attorney could also be invaluable, especially if you decide to take legal action and pursue a compensation claim.
