In Texas and across the country, there are certain rules and regulations that all truckers and trucking companies must adhere to. When an irresponsible driver or careless truck company disobeys these laws, they need to be held accountable.
Some of the most common truck company laws regulate the following:
- The number of hours a driver may operate their truck each day
- How often a truck is inspected
- The amount of weight a truck may carry
- Licenses and truck operations
Although most truck companies follow the law, some drivers and businesses try to cut corners which puts everyone at risk. When accidents happen due to such careless behavior, you need someone who is willing to stand up to these companies and their drivers.
Improperly Loaded Trucks
Failing to load a truck properly can lead to the shift of materials inside the truck or on the road. When cargo spills or shifts happen, the end result is often a serious truck accident.
18-Wheeler trucks are some of the largest vehicles on the road. When these types of trucks collide with smaller vehicles, serious injuries and damages can occur.
Truck Accident Injuries
Due to the size and weight of these large vehicles, truck accident injuries can be catastrophic and could include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord trauma and paralysis.
Struggling with the consequences of a truck accident can be overwhelming, victims may suffer severe injuries while trying to pay for medical expenses or lose income while they are unable to work.
