18-Wheeler Collisions & Deaths
About Trucking Regulation Violations
Truck accidents are some of the most devastating traffic collisions in
which a person can be involved. When loaded to capacity according to federal
trucking regulations, commercial trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons,
or 80,000 pounds. These same federal regulations provide guidelines for
the training of truck drivers, as well as for the equipment and operation
of commercial trucks. Violation of these trucking regulations can result
in a serious accident.
"Accidents" only occur when truck drivers break basic traffic
laws like talking on their cell-phone or driving while intoxicated. If
the truck driver or their insurance agency does not accept responsibility
for the injuries and damages that they have caused, a trial becomes necessary
to force them to make reparations. Do not hesitate to speak with an
El Paso personal injury lawyer from Chavez Law Firm right away if you've been hit by a negligent
truck driver. Their legal team is dedicated to protecting the community's
well-being by holding violators accountable for their actions.
Types of Truck Accident Cases
There are many various causes of 18-wheeler collisions. Distracted drivers
or drunk drivers can cause a rear-end accident, T-bone collision, or head-on
collision with an innocent motorist. Tired drivers can fall asleep at
the wheel and cause the same level of devastation. Other types of truck
accidents range from jackknife accidents to runaway trucks and truck rollovers.
