THE TRUTH ABOUT AUSTIN TRUCK ACCIDENTS
Texas highways are home to thousands of commercial trucks and 18 wheelers. When they cause accidents, it is almost always due to negligence. Our local Austin truck accident lawyers can prove it.
Trucking companies have many types of regulations to follow, such as hiring, training, drug testing, inspections, maintenance, drivers’ hours, and record keeping. All that it takes to prove negligence is showing that the trucking company or driver was violating at least one of them when your accident took place.
Trucking companies and their insurance providers typically have damage control personnel who are trained to respond to accidents. In many cases an insurance adjuster will ask that you give a recorded statement about the accident and your injuries. In too many cases, truck accident victims unintentionally hurt their claims by making assumptions or incorrect statements about how the accident occurred, or even by downplaying their injuries.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires drivers to rest at least 10 hours between shifts. Drivers aren’t permitted to drive more than 60 hours per week, or more than 11 hours in one day, or to work more than 14 hours in a 24 hour period. Drivers must be physically examined regularly, must pass drug tests, and must submit logs on each trip. If they broke any of these rules, we’ll find out.
Our legal team can inspect and preserve evidence at the crash scene, measure skid marks and evaluate the damage to the vehicles, obtain witness statements, examine the elog that records speed and other vital details about the driver’s actions, examine the driver’s GPS system, obtain and review the records of inspections, take photographs of the scene and of the vehicles involved, plus more. All without upfront fees.
