Taking early action by hiring a Waco 18-wheeler truck accident lawyer can be vital for such things as documenting the scene, obtaining the computer data from the big rig, interviewing witnesses and inspecting and documenting the condition of the big rig before it is repaired or destroyed.
Safety Rules for Trucking Companies
Part of the importance of selecting an experienced and award-winning truck accident attorney is the knowledge of the rules that apply to both truck driver and the trucking company.
These rules (the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations), are essential to establish the minimum level of safe conduct that we expect from truck drivers and trucking companies.
Whether the violations are driving in a fatigued condition, traveling at an unsafe speed or mechanical issues, failing to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are a primary reason for a truck crash.
Violations of the trucking company safety rules can be powerful evidence at trial in an 18-wheeler accident lawsuit.
There is no doubt that the trucking industry is crucial to a strong American economy. However, pushing for profits over safety often leads to disastrous results and Texas has more than its fair share of casualties.
Because a big rig ways 20 times more than a passenger car, a crash almost inevitably leads to disastrous results even at low speeds.
When a company or a driver ignores these safety rules, accidents happen that did not need to occur
