What Severe Injuries Can Be Caused by a Truck Accident?
The massive size and weight of a typical commercial truck dwarf that of a typical passenger vehicle. As a result, even low-speed collisions between an 18-wheeler and a car can cause catastrophic injuries to you and your loved ones.
Victims of truck accidents often suffer:
It is imperative that you see a doctor immediately and make sure you do everything you can to take care of your health. The trucking company and their insurance company has a team of investigators, lawyers, and adjusters.

Who Is Liable for Your Truck Accident?
Responsibility in a trucking accident is notoriously more difficult to determine than liability in a car accident.
Many parties are supposed to work together to ensure the safe operation of a commercial truck on the roads in Texas. If any one of them fail in their responsibilities, it could lead to a crash, causing you serious harm.
Parties who might be responsible for your damages include:
- Truck driver who hit you
- Manufacturer of the truck
- Company who maintained the truck
- Trucking company who hired the driver
- Crews who loaded cargo in or on the trailer
In many truck accident cases, there are at least two defendants:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company that contracted for the delivery job
Truck drivers can become exhausted behind the wheel while working a 14-hour day, increasing the chances of a crash.
Trucking companies can also be found negligent if:
- They continually overwork truck drivers to the point of fatigue
- Fail to thoroughly perform background checks
- Fail to make sure the drivers are properly trained and qualified
- Do not make sure the trucks are properly maintained
