San Antonio Truck Accident Attorney - There are more than 3,000 deaths and more than 30,000 injuries resulting from accidents involving semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles every year. It takes experience and resources to maximize recovery for your clients from a major trucking corporation. Most trucking accidents are caused by factors such as:
- Rear-End, Head-On Crashes and Jackknives
- Poor Maintenance, Including Tires and Brakes
- Driver Fatigue
- Unsecured Loads
- Aggressive Driving
- DWI / Drug Use
- Lack of Reflectors and Poor Visibility
Too often trucking companies hire inexperienced and unqualified operators that are dangerous to the driving public. Even qualified truck drivers get fatigued by the long hours and many thousands of miles required by most trucking companies. These companies must be held accountable when they cut corners on training, maintenance, and safety. Countless persons are injured or killed each year when truck drivers and their trucking companies are negligent.
Safety equipment, such as under-ride guards designed to protect smaller vehicles in the event of a rear-end collision with a semi-truck, must be robust and maintained properly to adequately protect the driving public. Reflectors and proper lighting are important to these trucks for the protection of the motoring public. Many times, trucking companies cut corners to maximize profit putting the driving public at greater risk.
