Truck accidents are very different from a normal auto accident. Large 18 wheeler trucks pose a serious threat to other drivers because they are much larger than a standard car or truck. When a large commercial truck collides with regular vehicles they can cause death or serious injury to other drivers. Our Texas trucking accident lawyers can help victims obtain compensation for the following:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Compensation for permanent injury
  • Compensation for loss of time at work or lost wages, including lost future wages in the event of permanent disability
  • Compensation for property damage
  • Compensation for medical treatment and hospital care

Our Houston truck accident attorneys will seek a financial settlement on our clients’ behalf for all of the above, in addition to a loss of life. Who can submit a wrongful death claim? Only immediate family for example, a brother, sister, spouse, mother, father, son or daughter can initiate a wrongful death claim as a result of a trucking accident that resulted in the death of a close relative

Texas truck accidents in general can have several responsible parties and not the driver alone. As previously stated, just because a truck driver’s 18 wheeler caused the truck accident, it does not necessarily mean he or she is at fault for the accident. Here are some common reasons for a truck accident:

  • Driver lost site of vehicle on the road
  • Driver was not paying attention
  • Driver was falling asleep
  • Driver was texting
  • Driver error
  • Mechanical malfunction ( if this was due to a mechanical error, the mechanic shop may be at fault)
  • Manufacturer malfunction ( this has to do with the make and model of the truck as well as how it was built)
  • Cargo Company responsibility if the loading company loaded the 18 wheeler with too much cargo than it can haul.
  • The company or employer of the driver may be at fault for failing to inspect vehicle, or allowing too much cargo on board, and can be at fault for providing unethical incentives for rush delivery causing the driver to sacrifice sleeping hours in order to obtain financial incentives

There can be numerous reasons and aiding factors that can ultimately cause 18 wheeler commercial trucks to collide with vehicles on the road.
