TRUCK ACCIDENTS

 

 

We all know the heart-pounding feeling of passing a semi truck on the highway. Semi trucks are large and intimidating, and can be overloaded or operated by drivers who are fatigued or impaired. The attorneys of Bickham Law will not hesitate to stand up to big truck companies and defend truck wreck victims.

 

 

According to the Department of Transportation, there were 421 fatal crashes in Texas involving large trucks in 2008—a reason why big truck companies are prepared for lawsuits.

 

According to NHTSA, “One out of nine traffic fatalities in 2008 resulted from a collision involving a large truck.”  That’s why you need a Texas truck accident lawyer who has experience handling truck wreck cases and is familiar with the tactics truck companies use.

Trucking Regulations

There are several strict regulations for semis covering everything from the legal hours of operation to truck capacity. If a truck driver or a trucking company violates these regulations, they are putting other drivers on the road at risk.

If you or your loved one has been injured in a Texas truck accident due to a truck driver’s failure to follow regulations, you need a Texas truck accident lawyer to defend your rights and help deliver the compensation you’re owed for your wreck.

Fatal Factors

The Department of Transportation requires truck drivers to keep detailed daily logs and time records for off and on-duty hours, sleep hours, driving hours, and more to ensure they are practicing safe driving.

Many factors can contribute to a collision with a company vehicle including unsafe driving habits, driver fatigue, or the use of illicit or over-the-counter drugs. A Texas truck accident lawyer can help if you are the victim of a truck driver’s error.
