What are the different types of truck accidents that can occur in Texas?
Keep in mind that there are several wrecks limited to commercial vehicles. Many of the different kinds of accidents rely on the directions of commercial trucks and other vehicles that were traveling when collisions happened, but some of the most common kinds of commercial truck collisions in Texas include the following:
- Head-On Collisions
- Rear-End Accidents
- T-Bone Collisions
- Rollover Accidents
- Jackknife Accidents
- Underride Accidents
- Override Accidents
- Lost Loads
If you were injured in any of the above truck accidents, you may want to consider your legal options. Give our firm a call today to learn more about how we can best help you.
What are the common causes of these accidents?
Nearly all commercial truck accidents need further investigations to define the causes and negligent parties. It is critical to pursue legal representation as soon as you can after an accident because trucking carriers will look to cover up or eliminate any incriminating evidence. At the Gonzalez Law Group, our legal team has experience with managing commercial truck crashes caused by factors including the following:
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Driver Fatigue
- Failure to Maintain
- Driver Error
- Reckless Driving
- Distracted Driving
- Defective Parts
- Overloaded Vehicle
Do not wait to reach out to our firm today if you were injured in a truck accident due to any of the above-mentioned negligent acts. Our legal team is here to help you protect yourself and your future. We are just one call away.
Who can be held liable for a truck accident in Texas?
Essentially, the largest difference between a typical car accident and a commercial truck crash concerns who may be responsible later. A truck driver may have been at fault, but most drivers do not have the personal insurance limits or assets required to pay the kinds of damages pursued by most commercial truck accident victims.
Some of the other parties that could be responsible for certain kinds of truck accidents may include, but are not limited to the following:
- Truck Driver Employers
- Truck Owners
- Maintenance Companies
- Truck Part Manufacturers
- Drivers and/or Owners of Other Vehicles
- Freight Owners
