San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyer

Due to the size and weight of semi trucks, accidents involving these vehicles can be particularly devastating. When one of these situations occurs, it is essential that the cause of the accident be carefully investigated in order to make a determination as to fault. Once the cause can be established, it may be possible to move forward with a lawsuit against the negligent parties in order to recover compensation for the losses and injuries that occurred.

Driver Negligence

In many truck accident cases, the truck driver is at fault. When the driver of a heavy 18-wheeler makes a mistake or acts carelessly, it can result in a serious and often fatal crash. Semi trucks are so much larger and heavier than ordinary vehicles; the damages done in a car/truck collision or other type of truck accident are often much more severe. We handle all types of cases involving driver negligence, including:

  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Driver drug abuse (driving under the influence of some type of drugs or alcohol)
  • Driving more hours than allowed by federal laws
  • Driving faster than road conditions allow

Unbalanced, Overloaded and Unsecured Cargo

18-wheelers are often carrying many tons of cargo in their trailers. However, if that cargo is not properly loaded, secured or more is loaded than the tractor trailer can carry, other drivers are in danger. An overloaded truck or one with unbalanced cargo can be extremely difficult for the driver to control, often resulting in jackknife accidents. Unsecured cargo can spill out onto the road, causing hazards that other drivers many not have time to avoid.

Other Causes of Truck Accidents

There are other reasons for a truck accident to occur. A Texas truck accident attorney at our firm can examine these possibilities, which can include:

  • Negligent hiring
  • Failure to properly train a driver
  • Defective truck equipment
  • Failure to maintain or improperly maintain a truck
  • Failure to keep proper records and log books
