Legal Path To Maximum Compensation

 

After being involved in a crash with a 70 foot long and 80,000 pound 18-wheeler, you’ll be lucky to be alive. These are some of the most tragic motor vehicle crashes that can occur. It’s usually not the truck drivers that are injured or killed in these accidents though. As per the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, people like you who are the drivers or occupants of passenger vehicles are the victims about 70 percent of the time. The Federal Motor Carrier Administration studied more than 120,000 truck crashes concluded that 87 percent of all truck crashes were the fault of truck drivers. According to San Antonio truck accident lawyer Jesse Hernandez, here are some of the common causes of the crashes that they were involved in:

  • Following too closely

  • Distracted driving like texting, talking on a phone or using a navigational device while driving.

  • Drowsy or fatigued driving in violation of federal hours of service regulations.

  • Speeding or driving too fast for traffic or weather conditions.

  • Failure to adequately maintain brakes or tires.

  • Overloading or improper loading of the truck’s trailer.

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of both.
