Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyers in Austin
Accidents involving tractor trailers can be very serious. And fatalities often result when they involve passenger cars. Different things can contribute to a tractor trailer accident. Some of the causes of a tractor trailer accident can be:
- a tire blow out, or some other mechanical problem with the truck
- the reckless or aggressive driving of the truck driver
- lack of sleep on the part of the truck driver
- road conditions, such as road work or debris on the road
- inclement weather conditions
Often more than one factor can contribute to a tractor trailer accident. The severity of accidents involving tractor trailers is compounded by the fact that passenger cars are designed and safety tested to meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. These government standards involve testing safety when a passenger car comes in contact with another passenger car, not a loaded 40 ton tractor trailer! According to the Federal Fatality Analysis Reporting System, Texas is in the top five states where fatal truck injuries occur.
