Truck Accidents Can Result in Catastrophic Injuries

Given the size and weight of a typical commercial truck, collisions with passenger vehicles have catastrophic consequences. Even low-speed collisions between an 18-wheeler and a car can cause catastrophic injuries.

Victims of truck accidents often suffer from the following:

It is imperative to seek immediate medical treatment and follow your doctor’s recommendations for treatment, surgery, and rehabilitation. The medical record will help to support your claim. 

This is crucial because the trucking company and its insurance company have a team of investigators, lawyers, and adjusters who will do everything possible to minimize your injuries and prevent you from getting the compensation you need and deserve.

Who Is Liable for Your Truck Accident?

Responsibility in a trucking accident is notoriously more difficult to determine than liability in a car accident. Multiple parties are responsible for the safe operation of commercial trucks on the roads and highways in Texas. A failure by any party can lead to a crash, resulting in severe injuries. 

Parties who might be responsible for your damages include the:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturer
  • Crews who loaded cargo in or on the trailer

Truck accidents typically involve at least two defendants – the truck driver and the trucking company. Drivers must abide by federally mandated driving limits and rest rules and may be held liable for fatigued driving. Trucking companies can also be found negligent if they:

  • Overwork truck drivers to the point of fatigue
  • Fail to perform background checks thoroughly
  • Fail to train drivers properly
  • Fail to maintain their trucks adequately
