Houston Truck Driver Negligence

In 2008, over 380,000 large trucks and vehicles were involved in trucking accidents across the United States. These accidents were responsible for 90,000 injuries and 4,229 deaths.

Negligence plays a major role in truck accident claims. A truck driver is negligent if they fail to exercise reasonable care for others on the road.

Truck drivers are paid to be on the road — meaning it is their first and foremost priority to drive with attentiveness and alertness. When truck drivers are pressured by their employers to exceed their allotted hours for work, shipments and loads, and miles they can drive, drivers become fatigued and overworked.

Many commercial truck driver fail to follow state and federal regulations, such negligence puts the lives of countless others who are on the road at risk. Additionally, in situations where the truck driver's negligence was unconscionable — if the driver was intoxicated, under the influence of drugs, racing, or otherwise driving with reckless disregard for others.

Carabin & Shaw is highly experienced in handling claims where the Texas Department of Transportation and federal Department of Transportation laws and regulations were not followed.

You have rights as a driver, and if reckless truck drivers who chose their profit over your safety have violated these rights, you also have the right to seek justice.
