Injured in an 18-wheeler accident in Eagle Pass?
Tractor-trailer accident victims need a good Texas truck accident lawyer
Did you know that roughly one in eight traffic deaths in the country involves an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer, or semi-truck accident? When driving a big rig it is sometimes difficult for drivers to see in certain blind spots around their truck. While driving the congested roads and highways in Texas, navigating a huge vehicle can be a challenge and sometimes it doesn’t turn out well. Other causes for trucking accident may be vehicular failure or driver failure.
When drivers are pushed to make deadlines over long hauls they may violate speed limits or other rules of the road and put others at risk. They may also be suffering from driver fatigue due to lack of sleep or sufficient breaks. Unfortunately, this can result in drivers falling asleep at the wheel or lacking the alertness necessary to avoid an accident.
Some drivers may also ignore trucking industry regulations by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tailgate or engage in reckless driving practices that put others in danger. And disreputable companies may hire drivers who are improperly trained or not licensed to handle a big rig tractor trailer truck, just to save money. All of these behaviors can cause serious accidents.
