Truck Accident FAQs

Let Our Houston Truck Accident Lawyers Help You Understand Your Rights

Statistically, trucks cause a lot of accidents every single year. In fact, 12% of traffic-related deaths and 4% of traffic-related injuries involve an 18 wheeler or a tractor-trailer. Because of their sheer size, when a truck is involved in an accident, it usually puts other people in danger and causes significantly more damage than other passenger vehicle-related accidents. Driving a truck is risky as well. Trucks are more prone to blind-spot related accidents, as well as accidents involving fatigue. Truckers are often under pressure to make deadlines, and drive over their legally permitted time limit, which causes drowsiness, fatigued driving, or even falling asleep at the wheel.

Whatever the cause, the damage of a truck accident will not be minor.

You may be left with a lot of questions after your truck accident. Every question you are likely to have is complicated and will differ from case to case. It is best to seek the help of a legal professional in these situations because they are familiar with trucking regulations and dealing with trucking companies.
