Dallas Truck Accident Attorneys
All across the highways of America semi-trucks are transporting the goods consumers want and need. The drivers of these trucks are held to strict rules and regulations while driving to ensure the safety of everyone on the road. Unfortunately, tractor trailer accidents can and do happen which cause serious injury or death.
Causes of Trucking Accidents
Although most truck drivers adhere to the regulations set by the Department of Transportation as well as their employers, the pressure of meeting deadlines may cause recklessness. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Driver fatigue
- Alcohol/Drug Use
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Unsafe cargo loading
- Distracted driving
- Cell phone use or texting while driving
When a truck driver disregards driving regulations and causes an accident with serious injuries, it is wise for victims to seek out the legal advice and representation of an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Most truck companies have accident investigators who arrive on the accident scene within hours. From that point forward the trucking companies begin preparing their defense to your claim(s). Remember, their job is to minimize the trucking company’s exposure to damages. Smith Clinesmith, LLP has the resources and experience to handle your tractor trailer or big rig accident having handled these types of cases nationwide.
