Trucking Accidents Must Be Taken Seriously
Eighteen-wheeler trucks, also known as big rigs or tractor-trailers, are implicated in tens of thousands of car accidents, motorcycle accidents and other accidents each year. Because of the significant weight of these vehicles, big rigs do not stop as quickly as a car. It is therefore hardly surprising that accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks often result in serious personal injury and wrongful death. If you’ve been injured in Texas, Kastl Law, P.C., can help.
Common Causes Of Accidents
There are numerous reasons why 18-wheeler truck accidents occur. Sometimes, it is due to driver inattention, such as when the truck driver is talking on a cellphone or texting while driving. Accidents involving tractor-trailers also occur due to speeding, failing to observe traffic signals and general driver negligence. They are also the result of poor maintenance. Other times, these accidents are caused by product defects.
