Each time a truck-driver gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, he or she is taking responsibility for the safety of all other people on the road. And a truck-driver may never expose others on the road to needless danger. A truck-driver must always comply with the rules of the road and must avoid crashing into other vehicles or pedestrians. If a truck-driver chooses to expose others to needless danger by choosing to violate the rules of the road, and as a result hurts or even kills someone, he or she is responsible and must be held fully accountable.
Tractor-trailer or semi-truck accidents, and commercial truck accidents in general, can be more complicated than car accidents. Sometimes the victim of a truck driver’s negligence can sue the individual driver as well as the trucking company, the owner of the trailer or even the owner of the load being carried by the truck. Numerous defendants and insurance carriers might be involved.
In trucking accident cases it is imperative to act quickly after the collision. There are many items of evidence that must be promptly preserved in order to satisfy the burden of proof in the event of trial. Delays in acting can result in lost evidence and facts that could be fatal to a case.
Texas, as well as the United States government, has special laws that apply to trucks. These laws limit the number of hours a driver can drive without resting, the weight of the load being carried and virtually every aspect of trucking. Frequently the violation of these laws is the reason that the accident occurred. We work with truck experts to get to the facts of each accident and develop a theory of liability to be used to settle or present to a jury.
