18 Wheeler Accident


Anyone can hire a lawyer, but when you need help call 1-877-659-1620

Note: If you have been involved in an 18 wheeler accident, or if a family member has been killed in a truck accident, you should consult an experienced trucking-accident attorney right away. There are time limits for bringing claims; for example, in Texas, you have two years from the date of an 18-wheeler accident to file a claim.

When 80,000 pounds of steel collide with your vehicle, devastation is sure to follow. For that reason, drivers of 18-wheelers are required to take special training and also are subject to federal regulations, including limits on the number of hours spent driving each day. 18-wheeler trucks also are subject to rigorous inspection tests. Unfortunately, many truck drivers ignore regulations, either out of necessity or greed. Companies that hire 18-wheeler drivers contribute to such conduct by setting unrealistic goals for their drivers. Our investigations reveal that many truck drivers maintain two sets of records, one that is factually correct and another that is falsified to show compliance with regulations. In addition, many truck owners fail to have their trucks regularly inspected, or they falsify inspection records in order to cut costs and reap continuing profits from an 18-wheeler that is not up to code. This illegal conduct directly causes 18-wheeler accidents, most frequently as the result of driver fatigue or brake failure.
