Truck Accidents

Houston Truck Accident Lawyer

There is an almost entirely different set of mechanics in a commercial truck/vehicle accident as compared to a normal automotive accident.  Commercial vehicles have massive blind spots, special licenses, unique requirements, and special hazards.  When operators make careless mistakes, the results can be devastating.  If equipment is too old, malfunctions, or safety protocols for maintenance aren’t followed, the results can be fatal.

Eighteen wheeler trucks, also known as tractor and trailer setups, are large and difficult in every aspect.  The rear blind spots are huge and sometimes rear visibility is non-existent, therefore extra caution must be taken when reversing a large vehicle.  Low profile cars often go unseen by the truck operators due to the height of the vehicle.  Trucks that don’t meet safety requirements or have improperly handled toxic materials on board are a huge risk.  Large trucks can have blowouts from the prolonged use of old tires and may fling deadly steel-braided shrapnel at nearby vehicles, or leave bits of it on the highway for another motorist to drive over.  If you are a victim of any type of truck accident, contact a truck accident lawyer at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP.  Our attorneys are experienced and compassionate and can provide you with the immediate answers you need to get back on your feet.

Eighteen wheelers are not the only large vehicles on the road.  Construction vehicles often have to share the road with cars as well, and there are special procedures for going about bringing a construction purposed vehicle onto a public road. When construction situations like these are improperly handled, terrible accidents can result.
