Truck Accident Attorney Dallas
Accidents caused by big trucks can cause major injuries. Be it 18-wheelers, big rigs, semis, or tractor-trailers, these vehicles can lead to severe damage. Any miscalculation on the part of the driver can cause magnified effects due to the sheer weight of a truck. Due to the magnitude of size and weight of such trucks, smaller cars are usually mangled or crushed on impact.
Causes of such accidents
Here are a few of the top contributing factors that have been determined after nationwide studies over a period of time.
- Use of over-the-counter or prescription drugs
- Unfamiliarity with the roadway
- Illegal maneuvers
- Speeding, or traveling too fast
- Work pressure on the driver
- Inadequate action
- Inattention or external distractions
- The driver is not familiar with the vehicle
Generally, truck accidents are more complex as compared to car-only cases. Accidents of this nature often involve much higher stakes as truck accidents often lead to death or catastrophic injuries. Additionally, since trucks are often operated by drivers who have been employed by companies whereas the trucks are manufactured or leased from different companies, claims involve multiple parties who are potentially responsible.
