Who Can Be Held Liable for 18-Wheeler Collisions, Injuries, and Fatalities in Texas?

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 620 traffic fatalities involved an 18-wheeler throughout the state last year alone, which was the highest number in the nation.

Our state’s size, economic dependence on the petroleum, shipping, and transit industries, and access to over 3,200 miles of interstate roadways require consistent and heavy truck traffic that frequently leads to serious and fatal collisions.

The legal complexities behind these 18-wheeler truck crashes begin with preserving and investigating evidence to determine who was at fault so we can pursue justice and compensation on your behalf.

The potential at-fault parties may include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The truck maintenance crew
  • Another third party.

Each party or combination of parties can be at fault for different reasons.  The tragic thing is that most accidents could have been prevented.

Common areas and types of negligence include:

Truck Driver Negligence

Texas truck drivers are the first line of defense for avoiding a collision with much smaller passenger vehicles on our roadways. When they are operating a potentially 80,000-pound truck negligently, our fellow Texans are frequently seriously injured or killed.

Some of the most common forms of truck driver negligence include:

Trucking Company Negligence

When trucking companies put profits over safety, they are also placing everyone on our Texas roadways in danger.

Types of Corporate Negligence Include:

  • Hiring unqualified drivers
  • Insufficient or lack of training and safety programs for drivers
  • Failing to run the appropriate background checks
  • Overlooking previous driving violations
  • Failing to conduct required medical, alcohol, or drug testing
  • Pressuring drivers to surpass the Hours of Service Regulations

Truck Manufacturer, Maintenance Crew, or Another Third-Party’s Negligence

Like other vehicles on our roadways, the integrity of the truck is paramount to the truck driver’s ability to operate it safely. There can be catastrophic consequences with long distances between stops and with infrequent inspections.

Examples of third-party negligence may include, but are not limited to:

  • Improperly loaded or overloaded cargo
  • Defective truck parts and components
  • Failure to properly resolve a safety issue or recall
  • Improper maintenance and inadequate inspections
