Semi Truck Accidents

There are a reported 500,000 trucking accidents each year in the United States, representing up to 13% of all traffic-related fatalities. Large truck accidents are also responsible for high rates of personal injury and property damage. Semi truck drivers are not always found at fault for crashes, which can result from the negligence of other drivers and pedestrians, poor weather, sharp turns, curved roads, and an imbalance of cargo weight. Regardless of blame, large trucks are a major traffic safety threat to all.

Texas roads see a higher incidence of trucking crashes than most states. In 2010, more than 12,000 large trucks were involved in accidents, with roughly 5,000 causing injury. Collisions where drivers rear-end or change lanes in front of a large commercial truck are most likely to be fatal.

 Frequent Causes of Trucking Accidents Include:

  • Sleepy or fatigued drivers
  • Alcohol or drug impairment
  • Drivers with little experience
  • Insufficient training
  • Reckless driving or speeding
  • Aggressive drivers
  • Tailgating other vehicles
  • Not yielding the right of way to other drivers
  • Poor condition of truck brakes
  • Oversized loads
  • Overloaded vehicles
  • Hazardous safety systems
  • Missing underride protection

Trucking Accident – What should I do?

When truck drivers are tired, inexperienced, distracted, or otherwise negligent, the trucking company is most often found at fault. If the truck driver is an independent contractor, it can be more difficult to receive compensation. It is important to initiate an investigation as soon as possible after an accident if you want to prosecute a case against a trucking company or contractor. Contact a Texas semi-truck accident lawyer immediately to help you gather crucial evidence and seek damages.
