The truck accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Houston residents who were injured in a trucking accident. The accident, which occurred on a secondary road off of Gessner Road, was caused by a semi-truck that hit the victims' car. The driver of the semi-truck made an unsafe lane change and when the truck entered the desired lane, the clients were unprepared to react. The truck hit their car and caused it to spin around a number of times.
When the driver of a truck wants to make a lane change, they must be extra cautious given how much higher they sit in comparison to other vehicles on the road. The height can distort their ability to see cars beside their truck. This is why truck drivers must prepare for a lane change by turning a signal on much earlier than the driver of a smaller car would, in order to make sure that other vehicles allow them to enter safely. The particular driver in this case failed to conduct a safe lane change at Arnold & Itkin's clients are now both suffering from lower back injuries. The lawsuit was filed in Harris County, Texas for the purpose of recovering the compensation the victim's deserve in order to obtain medical treatment and recover from the accident.
