Who Can Be Held Liable for a Commercial Truck Accident in Texas?

Large commercial trucks, including 18-wheelers, flatbed trucks, construction equipment vehicles, and other delivery vehicles used in the oil and gas industry are common on our Texas roadways.

When large trucks are involved in vehicle collisions, the much smaller vehicles and their occupants traveling alongside can be catastrophically injured or even killed.

Unfortunately, Texas truck collisions are often preventable, including those caused by the truck driver’s negligence.

Common negligent actions that lead to truck accidents may include:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
  • Speeding
  • Fatigued Driving
  • Failing to Leave Enough Room to Stop
  • Driving Too Fast for the Traffic or Weather Conditions

Although truck driver negligence is a common cause of 18-wheeler and other commercial vehicle collisions in Texas, they are not the only party that can be held liable for the truck accident, injuries, or fatalities that result.

Trucking companies may be held liable when they hire inexperienced drivers, or when they place profits over safety and pressure the truck’s driver to violate federal Hours of Service Regulations to deliver more goods in less time.

Other liable parties may include the truck’s manufacturer, for failing to recall a defective part, or the truck’s maintenance company, for failing to keep the truck in good working condition. In some cases, another third party may be held liable, including cargo companies that improperly load or overload the truck.

No matter how your Texas truck accident occurred, our skilled Houston personal injury lawyers at the Hollingsworth Law Firm will investigate your crash from end-to-end to ensure all potentially liable parties are included in your claim.

How Do Texas Semi-Truck Accident Injuries Differ From Other Traffic Collisions?

Because of the size of a Semi-Truck, and its potential to weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, the injuries that result from a crash involving one of these large vehicles typically cause catastrophic injuries. In other truck crashes, the smaller vehicle’s occupants can be killed without notice.

These devastating accidents are treated differently by our law firm because the injured parties or their bereaved families require a higher level of compensation to get their lives back on track.

At the Hollingworth Law Firm, we will pursue each liable party for the maximum financial outcome possible, so our clients can move forward with confidence.
