Compared to other car accidents, truck accidents often result in more life-threatening and catastrophic injuries. The massive weight and size of commercial trucks pose a huge danger to other drivers, while at the same time insulating the truck driver from serious harm in an accident.

For this reason, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has established a number of federal truck regulations for trucking companies and drivers to follow, such as:

  • Mandatory rest breaks
  • Adherence to loading restrictions and carefully secured cargo
  • Proper training for drivers
  • Regular vehicle maintenance
  • Mileage limitations
  • Completion of vehicle inspection reports before and after each trip

Unfortunately, not all truck drivers follow these regulations, resulting in accidents that cause severe damage to other vehicles.

The Faster We Get Started, The Better It Is For You!

Mere hours after the accident, physical evidence like skid marks and scuffs will begin to disappear from the scene, especially once police barriers have been removed. Before evidence has all but eroded, you should contact our attorneys.

We will make sure to collect any necessary evidence that could prove the truck driver was at fault. The sooner you hire a truck accident lawyer, the sooner we can get started on your case.

What Are the Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in Houston?

While commercial truck drivers are often very skilled and patient drivers, they are still subject to making mistakes. Unfortunately, because of the size and weight of their vehicles, any mistake can be fatal.

Therefore, drivers have to be particularly careful so they are not negligent and subsequently the cause of someone’s injury or death.

Here are some examples of common truck accident causes:
