Texas Trucking Accident Lawyers
If you were injured by a semi-truck in Texas, you may be eligible for compensation. Damages can range from lost wages, to medical expenses, pain and suffering and more. Don’t make the mistake of waiting to contact a Texas truck injury attorney. Information important to your case can be forgotten or lost if you wait too long. The insurance company for the truck driver will also likely call you soon to get a statement. Their interests lie with the trucking company, not you.

Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents
Trucking accidents can be caused by many factors. Sometimes the truck driver may be speeding or driving dangerously. If they have a loaded trailer, it can take 20% to 40% longer than a passenger vehicle to bring the truck to a stop. These percentages are only increased if the roads are wet or icy.
In order to protect against truck driver error and fatigue, drivers are federally regulated and new rules have been passed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The rules passed to decrease fatigue associated with truck wrecks include the following:
- Drivers may work only 70 hours a week.
- After 70 hours, they may return to driving if they have rested for 34 continuous hours
- Truck drivers must take a 30-minute break sometime within the first eight hour shift.
Despite these increased safety regulations, a truck driver may still become fatigued on the roadways and cause an accident. Trucking wrecks can also be caused by an impaired driver, improper truck loading and weight balance, or poor vehicle maintenance. No matter the circumstances surrounding your accident, call the truck accident lawyers at Zinda Law Group today to determine if you may have a case.
Trucking Accidents Can Be Costly
A semi-truck accident can leave you in a financial bind. Your injury could leave you unable to work and result in lost wages. Medical bills or rehabilitation costs can add up. If the accident results in the death of a passenger, psychological distress can be devastating. The stress of dealing with all of these problems can take a toll.
Our Texas truck injury lawyers can investigate your accident and determine if it was due to disregard of regulations, truck driver error, or if the trucking company is at fault.
