FIGHTING FOR TRUCK ACCIDENT INJURY VICTIMS
Commercial and semitrucks serve a necessary purpose. Our community, stores and economy rely on these vehicles to transport goods from facilities to distributors. The Austin area has a lot of truck traffic on the nearby highways and interstates. Sharing the roadway with these vehicles is something we become accustomed to. While truck drivers are required a special license, training and to follow the laws, these vehicles can still cause and be involved in accidents.If you are involved in an accident with a truck, contact the motor vehicle accident attorney at J. Torrez Law P.C. We will help you take action so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
INVESTIGATING THE CAUSE
The size, shape and weight of trucks make them particularly dangerous when accidents occur. The injuries sustained by victims are often serious due to the impact such a large vehicle has when colliding with a smaller automobile.
While most truck drivers abide by rules and regulations, accidents can still happen. Sometimes an accident is due to driver negligence, but other factors can contribute to a crash. Common causes for truck wrecks include:
- Driver fatigue
- Insufficient training and inexperience
- Hazardous weather conditions
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Driver impairment
- Uneven and improper vehicle load
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Misuse of underride protection
Both truck drivers and other motorists can sustain injuries and be victims depending on the circumstances. Our lawyer will investigate the accident, listen to your needs and advocate for justice on your behalf.
