Laredo Texting and Trucking
Unfortunately, distracted driving is as common on Laredo roadways as it is all over the state of Texas. Our attorneys know from experience that commercial truck drivers, similar to drivers of passenger vehicles, do not always follow safety protocols to the letter of the law. Distracted driving is hazardous in any type of vehicle, but the stakes are much higher when the distracted driver is operating an 18-wheeler that can weigh 10- to 40-tons.
Laredo 18-wheeler accidents, regardless of what caused them, can result in serious injuries and death. These dangers are exponentially greater due to the size and weight of commercial trucks and the forces that they generate. These collisions are more likely to result in serious injuries or fatalities than those involving only passenger vehicles.

The lawyers at Carabin & Shaw are well acquainted with the dangers of Laredo texting and trucking. Commercial truck drivers and their parent companies are legally responsible for ensuring that their vehicles are operated safely and do not endanger other drivers and their families. There is simply no excuse for Laredo truck drivers to engage in any kinds of distracted driving; this type of behavior is careless, negligent, and can result in collisions that are otherwise completely avoidable.
The ready availability of a cell phone may lead truck drivers to feel that they "need to" send and receive text messages, check emails, interact on social media, and watch online videos while operating their vehicles. Without a doubt, Laredo texting and trucking is completely unsafe and represents an unacceptable risk to drivers. As of the summer of 2017, the state legislature of Texas has banned texting while driving and made it punishable by a fine. Our legal team hopes that all drivers will obey this new law as it will increase the overall safety of all Texan drivers.Let Carabin & Shaw Fight for You
