Truck Accident

Texas is a big state with plenty of roads, and you are sure to see plenty of large trucks. We’re talking about commercial style big trucks, not pickups. If you are anything like us, you either want to pass them or stay well behind them when you are on the roadway. Not because they aren’t normally safe, but just in case something happens.

Unfortunately, sometimes accidents involving large trucks do happen, and often it is due to someone else’s negligence. If you need a truck accident attorney in Dallas, The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde is standing by to take your case.

How Does It Happen

Big trucks are everywhere delivering our goods and helping to build our infrastructure. Usually, these trucks are owned by a company that operates multiple vehicles.

Large commercial trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds and the men and women who drive them have a big responsibility. They have to obtain their commercial driver’s license before they can operate and many drivers have to get specific endorsements depending on what they will be transporting (hazmat, passengers, etc.).

Companies that own these trucks are responsible for keeping them roadworthy. If they skip regular inspections and maintenance, the vehicle could suffer any number of things that could harm others on the roadway. Brake failure or engine failure could lead to a driver losing control of the truck.

All material on trucks should be secured, especially if there is an open bed. How often have you seen a truck with recently chopped trees on the back? Imagine how much damage one of those trees could do to a vehicle.

Commercial truck drivers should follow all driving hour requirements. If they don’t, and they are driving while exhausted, the consequences could be deadly. If a driver is operating while distracted by their phones or driving impaired by drugs or alcohol, then they should be held liable for any damages or injuries they cause.

A large truck has the potential to cause major damage to multiple vehicles at once as well as pedestrians near the roadway. Anyone hit by one could suffer major injuries.
