Many people who are injured in a crash with an 18-wheeler in Texas will not know where to turn for help. They have been hospitalized since the accident, not knowing exactly what happened, unable to return to work until they recover.
If you have sustained a truck wreck head injury, you are likely one of these unfortunate victims. Doctors are unsure when you will be able to get back on your feet again, and nobody can tell you for sure what to expect after you’ve healed. Luckily, there are people out there who can help you get payment for the financial costs of the accident by identifying who was responsible for the crash.
For instance, many Texas semi accidents are a result of:
- Driver issues. Countless accidents have been caused by inexperienced truck drivers, drivers who have spent too long behind the wheel, or truckers under the influence.
- Weather hazards. All vehicles are warned about going too fast for conditions, and trucks are no exception. With tons of weight behind them, a slip on ice or decreased visibility in the rain can have a devastating impact on a smaller vehicle.
- Mechanical problems. Many older rigs have brake problems, electrical problems, insufficient lights or mirrors or other trucking code violations that can contribute to an accident.
- Weight and load issues. Some disreputable truckers will overload their vehicles in an attempt to bring in more money. Unfortunately, weight limits exist for a reason: they greatly affect the handling and control of the trailer, since heavier loads are more likely to shift and roll.
