Truck Accidents in Texas
Each year, truck accidents are reported in the state of Texas that lived countless people injured. These vehicles are much larger than most passenger vehicles sharing the road. As a result, accidents in which they are involved are more likely to cause severe damage and injuries. Unfortunately, negligent actions are commonly identified as causes of these accidents in our state.
There are many ways that truck accidents can occur as a result of negligence, improper maintenance, or improperly loaded cargo. One of the most common causes of truck accidents is driver fatigue. When a truck driver is tired, they are more likely to make errors in judgment and be less able to react quickly to changes in traffic or road conditions.
Improperly maintained trucks can also be a hazard on the roads. If a truck’s brakes are not properly maintained, for example, the truck could jackknife or lose control in an emergency situation. Improperly loaded cargo can also cause problems. If a load is not balanced correctly, it can shift during transit and cause the truck to lose control.
