Truck Accident Investigation
Uncovering the Causes of a Truck Accident
Trucking accidents can result in some of the most catastrophic injuries of any accident on the road. The size and weight of trucks are enough in themselves to make for total disaster when an 18-wheeler or semi collides with other vehicles. However, it is not merely a truck's size and weight that cause an accident. More often than not, these types of collisions are the result of negligence – negligence on behalf of the truck driver himself, negligence on behalf of the trucking company, and sometimes even negligence on behalf of truck product manufacturers.
After any crash involving this type of large vehicle it is absolutely imperative that investigation of the accident is conducted by someone with a thorough understanding of truck operating procedures and trucking laws. When the specific causes of an accident are being assessed, more than just the authority of an on-the-scene police officer will be required. Houston truck accident lawyers from Arnold & Itkin are more than qualified to provide legal help.
