Drivers of Commercial Vehicles including Trucks, Vans, Buses, Taxi Cabs, and Company Automobiles are Causing Fatal Accidents and Catastrophic Injury Accidents

According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, thousands of motorists are killed each year by commercial vehicles including large trucks, specialized van, modified trucks, specialized SUVs, and company cars. These commercial vehicles are too often driven by under trained, inexperienced, and over worked drivers that are under pressure to drive fast as well as keep maintenance costs down.  These factors combined with distractions in the vehicles including cell phones, GPS devices, computers, paper work, radio communications, and other employees can cause fatal automobile accidents.

Whether a company driver is driving a large commercial vehicle such as a bus, passenger van, 18-wheeler, dump truck, propane truck, garbage truck, construction truck, semi-trucks, tractor-trailer, utility truck, hauling truck, or semi, or smaller commercial vehicles such as an SUV, passenger vehicle, limo, or taxi cab, it is important that the driver be trained to operate the commercial vehicle and have their driving record reviewed.  Unfortunately, some businesses neither train their drivers nor do a proper investigation to determine if the drivers that they are entrusting their commercial vehicles have a history of reckless driving, have caused several accidents, have DWI accidents in their past, have a history of driving drunk or under the influence of drugs, or have no experience driving the vehicles that they are given.  These factors can lead to negligent entrustment that causes an accident or collisions resulting in serious injuries, catastrophic injuries, or even death.

Texas Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawsuits

Texas Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawsuits are typically against businesses that have negligently entrusted a careless or drunk driver to use a company vehicle and that driver causes a serious wreck or crash.  These commercial vehicle lawsuits commonly are vigorously defended by the business and their insurance company despite the fault of their driver that caused the collision or accident. 

In investigating a potential commercial vehicle accident lawsuit against a business or their insurance company, it is often important to obtain a Texas Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer that is familiar with these lawsuits.  The commercial vehicle collision lawyer should know how to gather evidence regarding the commercial vehicle crash and make sure that those injured in the accident, those that have lost loved ones in the accident, and crucial witnesses to the accident are not tricked by an insurance adjuster when they are on medication, grieving, or not expecting contact.

As an experienced Texas Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer familiar with insurance adjusters and insurance tricks, Jason Coomer, has helped many families through Texas commercial vehicle collision lawsuits that have catastrophically injured a family member or has resulted in the death of a loved one.  He provides protection from insurance adjuster tricks and helps families obtain compensation for the damages that they have suffered.

Texas Truck Accident Lawsuits

Since trucking deregulation in Texas and the passage of NAFTA, you can see many several ton large trucks barreling up and down Texas highways including I-35, I-10, I-20, and other interstate highways.  These trucks come from Mexico, Canada, Texas, and several other states carrying large loads and traveling at high rates of speed.  Many of the large trucks are owned by large Texas Trucking Companies, Mexican Trucking Companies, and other large commercial trucking companies.

Large commercial trucks account for about 10 percent of all fatal vehicle accidents in the United States. Almost 10% of fatal trucking accidents in the United States occurred in the state of Texas on Texas roads.  Truck accidents have an increased chance of causing serious injuries and death because in most cases, a truck cannot remain upright during an accident. Additionally, because of the size and weight of commercial trucks, truck drivers have limited visibility and maneuverability as well as limited control of their vehicle.  This makes it easier to lose control and crush other vehicles. These factors greatly contribute to the damage done to passenger vehicles in trucking accidents. Whether the truck driver is distracted, falls asleep at the wheel or just isn't paying attention, accidents caused by large commercial vehicles kill or catastrophically injure thousands of motorists each year.

Truck drivers and the trucking companies they work for have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner, but unfortunately sometimes saving money on maintenance, training, or staff as well as making more money by speeding to make deadlines are more important to trucking companies and truck drivers. Unsafe driving, oversized or unsecured loads, and various other careless factors put the public and the truck operators in danger.  Some of these factors include:

  • The driver rushing to meet a tight delivery deadline

  • The driver is on drugs or has been drinking

  • The driver is fatigued and tired due to driving for long periods

  • The driver is stressed and not paying attention to other drivers

  • Difficult to see blind spots from a large truck

  • The driver does not leave enough space between vehicles

  • Improper truck maintenance

  • Improper securing of loads

  • Under trained drivers

  • Mechanical failure and defective components

  • Overloading of the truck

Unfortunately, with large trucks driving on Texas roads and highways comes the potential of catastrophic damages.  Untrained, overworked, or inexperienced  drivers all too often lose control of their vehicles causing them to jackknife, overturn, or collide with passenger vehicles.  Many of these truck drivers are overworked, on caffeine or other drugs, and running behind schedule.  This is extremely problematic when these drivers are driving vehicles that weigh many tons and collide with smaller vehicles.  When this happens it is typically the passengers of the smaller vehicle that suffer.  If you or a loved one have been ran over by a truck, had a large truck hit you, or collide with your vehicle, it is important to obtain excellent legal representation from a Texas truck accident lawyer to protect you or your loved one's rights and to make sure that an investigation as to the cause of the collision in done correctly.

Please feel free to contact The Law Offices of Jason S. Coomer for additional information on vehicle collisions, truck accidents, company vehicle wrecks, and car crashes.  Don't think that if you have suffered serious injuries in an truck collision or other commercial vehicle crash that the insurance industry will take care of you or voluntarily pay you for all the medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, impairment, disfigurement, and other damages that you have suffered.  They probably won't.  In fact, many insurance adjusters will offer low settlement amounts hoping that you will sign away your claim prior to knowing the full extent of your damages. 

Texas Truck Accident Lawyer and Commercial Vehicle Accident Claims

The trucking industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that is essential to our economy, but since the deregulation of trucking in Texas and NAFTA have come many truck accidents including many traffic deaths and serious injuries.  Unfortunately, with large trucks driving on our roads and highways comes the potential of catastrophic damages.  Untrained, overworked, or inexperienced  drivers all too often lose control of their vehicles causing them to jackknife, overturn, or collide with passenger vehicles.  Many of these drivers are overworked, on caffeine or other drugs, and running behind schedule.  This is extremely problematic when these drivers are driving vehicles that weigh many tons and collide with smaller vehicles.

When this happens it is typically the passengers of the smaller vehicle that suffer.  If you or a loved one have been ran over by a truck, had a large truck hit you, or collide with your vehicle, it is important to obtain excellent legal representation from a Texas truck accident lawyer to protect you or your loved one's rights and to make sure that an investigation as to the cause of the collision in done correctly.
