Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in Texas

Filing a personal injury claim can be a complex process, but our truck accident attorneys in Houston are experienced in helping clients through the necessary legal procedures. We understand that every situation is unique, and we know that truck accidents can occur for a number of different reasons.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver Fatigue & Impairment – Truck drivers who are tired or impaired by alcohol or drugs pose extreme dangers to others on public roadways. Fatigue and impairment can significantly slow reaction time and motor function, which elevates risk of accidents. Because a tired or impaired driver behind the wheel of a massive commercial vehicle is incredibly dangerous, there are numerous regulations in place to ensure that drivers are given proper breaks and that they are regularly tested for drug or alcohol use.
  • Overloaded or Improperly Loaded Cargo – Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks can be difficult to maneuver. Unsecure cargo can also spill over onto public roadways and create hazards. Truck drivers and trucking companies have an obligation to ensure that vehicles are properly loaded so as to reduce the risk of preventable accidents.
  • Defective Parts & Equipment – Defective auto parts and equipment are common causes of truck accidents. Defective brakes, bad tires, and even the most minor of defects can lead to devastating accidents. A defective part may also be caused by a failure to properly maintain the truck.  
  • Improperly Trained drivers – Untrained drivers are simply more prone to making errors. With 80,000 pound vehicles, even small mistakes can have big consequences. Trucking companies have the responsibility to ensure that employees receive proper driving and safety training.
  • Adverse Weather Conditions – Bad weather – including rain, snow, and strong winds – is a very common cause of truck accidents. Truck drivers should be properly trained to handle these conditions or to follow protocol for pulling off the roads when weather becomes too difficult to navigate.

Ultimately, truck drivers and trucking companies have the responsibility to take reasonable measures to address these common causes of accidents and reduce the risk of them occurring.

Recovering Compensation for Your Expenses & Losses

Even when a trucking accident occurs at a relatively low speed, it still has the potential to cause very serious damage. When individuals suffer catastrophic injuries in an accident, such as injuries to the spine or the brain, the damage may last for years after the incident. And, in many cases, a truck accident will impede the victim's ability to work and leave them with heavy financial burdens.

A successful claim can provide compensation for the following:

  • Expenses for medical treatment
  • Lost wages and earning capacity
  • Physical / emotional suffering

One of the most important elements of your personal injury claim is establishing who was responsible for the accident. Whether the truck driver acted recklessly or the trucking company was negligent, you should not hesitate to hold the responsible party accountable. In order to obtain the compensation you need, you will need to show the court that another person's negligence caused the accident.

At Daspit Law Firm, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to help our clients prepare a strong case. If you have suffered serious injuries in a truck accident, you do not have to face the future alone. With help from our legal team, you can alleviate your financial burdens and focus on healing.
