Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks weigh as much as 80,000 pounds with full cargo loads, and when they are involved in crashes with passenger cars and trucks, it is often the smaller vehicle that is destroyed.

In 2013, there were 531 commercial motor vehicle fatalities in Texas, and many of those accidents involved 18 wheelers. In addition, 5,798 people were injured by commercial vehicles in 2013, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Because truck accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, the consequences can be devastating. Semi-trucks weigh as much as 80,000 pounds with full cargo loads, and when they are involved in crashes with passenger cars and trucks, it is often the smaller vehicle that is destroyed. This means serious, and often fatal, injuries to the drivers and passengers in those smaller cars.

Truck accidents lead to serious injuries such as spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and more. These injuries are often fatal, leaving family and friends devastated and unsure where to turn. The Carse Law Firm is equipped to help.

We have helped people injured in truck accidents throughout Texas.

Often truck accidents are caused because the driver has violated federal law regarding how many hours they are permitted to drive. Federal law limits drivers to 11 hours of driving time, followed by a mandatory 8-hour break. They are also not permitted to work more than 77 hours per week. Yet, because companies often pay the driver by the miles driven or the deliveries they make, many drivers push that limit, and many truck accidents are caused by driver fatigue. In addition, in order to stay awake, many truck drivers resort to medications designed to keep them awake, unaware that they are now driving impaired. When you add distracted drivers, such as those texting or making cell phone calls, it is easy to see why so many accidents occur between passenger cars and trucks on Texas highways.
