Our Houston truck accident lawyers have filed suit in Harris County, Texas on behalf of a young woman who was injured as a result of an unsafe lane change.
Our client was driving her vehicle when the driver of a large truck working for Valley Express Inc. made an unsafe lane change directly into her car. The truck collided with the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle, causing her to experience serious injuries.
Companies like Valley Express must hire drivers who are qualified to operate large vehicles. Their drivers must be held to a high standard when it comes to obeying traffic laws and implementing safe driving practices. This is particularly important when it comes to lane changes.
Large trucks have blind spots that can make it difficult for their drivers to see smaller vehicles, but they are also equipped with mirrors to improve visibility. Truck drivers should be aware of these blind spots and must act accordingly, changing lanes with caution and only if there are no other vehicles in their path. When trucking companies hire inexperienced or careless drivers, no one on the road is safe.
Our client's injuries are an awful reminder of this, and we are committed to helping her recover the compensation she needs for her medical treatment and other costs and losses. We will work to prove that Valley Express and their driver failed to uphold their duty to stay safe on the road, so our client can get a fair recovery and move on with her life.
