18-Wheeler Accidents

18-Wheeler Accidents

The potentially disastrous outcome of car accidents is intensified when the vehicle involved is much larger, heavier, or carrying hazardous cargo. Commercial trucks are the most dangerous vehicles on the road today, and as the number of 18-wheelers on the road continues to increase, so does the risk for passengers, drivers, and pedestrians on the roadways. Most of the trucking accidents in Texas are caused by a combination of a truck’s unique characteristics, and its performance capabilities: how fast it can accelerate, and brake, what the driver can see, and his ignorance, or carelessness. If you feel that a car accident you were involved in was caused by the negligence of a commercial truck driver, you may have cause for a lawsuit.
