Commercial truck wrecks
No matter where you are in Texas, truck traffic can be a nuisance. But, because nearly a quarter of all 18-wheelers on the road today fail to meet some basic truck safety requirements, that annoyance could turn deadly.
It’s not uncommon that truck drivers are forced into working a 20-hour shift and be provided a rig with bad brakes, bald tires and other defects that would fail even the most cursory of safety inspections.
This situation is repeated on our busy Interstate highways where semis often out number passenger cars. There are 450,000 truck wrecks each year nationally. Nearly 1 in 10 fatalities on Texas roads involve an 18-wheeler.
But, when one of those massive semi-trucks gets involved in a wreck, you can bet that the trucking company’s management will have a team of defense attorneys on the scene within hours. They will do everything they can to cloud the issue no matter who is at fault.
If you or someone you love are involved in a wreck with a big rig, you need your own team of 18-wheeler wreck attorneys, a team that understand the games trucking companies play and that understand the rules of the road in Texas.
