Frequently Asked Questions
Why is an accident involving an 18-wheeler different from other motor vehicle accidents?
Accidents of all kinds can be scary for everyone involved. But when a vehicle as large as an 18-wheeler is involved, it adds even more stress to the situation.
But these accidents differ from other Texas motor vehicle accidents for a couple of reasons. Commercial truck drivers are hired by trucking companies, and both drivers and trucking companies are subject to federal and state regulations put in place. Regular drivers on Texas roads are not subject to these same regulations.
Additionally, in accidents involving an 18-wheeler, there are more parties involved than just the driver and the trucking company. Typically a cargo company is also involved, as well as the manufacturer of the truck. With all of the parties involved, these accidents can quickly become complicated.
