Protect Yourself and Your Family
It probably comes as no surprise that trucking corporations and their insurance companies have and use their extensive resources to defend claims filed by people who have been injured or killed in trucking crashes. These trucking corporations and insurance companies hire big defense firms and lawyers in an attempt to avoid paying claims, or if they do pay, to pay as little as possible.
No one ever thinks that they will be involved in a serious crash and need to have a trial attorney capable of taking on a large trucking corporation or insurance company. But when that happens, you need to choose the right Waco injury attorney to represent you in what is frequently a David versus Goliath battle.
Preventing Serious Collisions in Texas
Just as we all have to follow safety rules when we are driving our cars, trucking companies and their drivers must follow basic safety rules and regulations to protect the driving public on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes trucking companies or drivers bend or ignore the rules and regulations to save time and to increase profits. These companies should never place profits above safety, but it happens all too often.
Failure to follow basic safety rules can result in catastrophic injuries to the drivers and passengers in our communities. When a trucking company or its employee driver violates a safety rule and hurts someone, that trucking company is legally responsible and should be accountable for the damage that results.
What Are Common Causes of Truck Accidents?
There are many different causes of trucking crashes that result from safety rule violations, including:
- Inadequate training
- Unsafe driving practices/reckless driving
- Aggressive driving practices
- Driver fatigue from long work-shifts/unrealistic driving schedules
- Failure to inspect or maintain tires, brakes, lights, and other trucking equipment
- Cell phone use
- Distracted driving
- Failure to install blind spot mirrors
