Commercial and heavy truck crashes can be caused by one or more of several factors which include but are not limited to:

Excessive Pressure on the Commercial Hauler or Carrier

Here in Texas, there is, unfortunately, an excessive amount of real financial pressure on hauling and trucking companies to deal with their increasing costs of doing their business. These costs can often see sizeable swings in what they pay for economics, lost contracts, mechanical breakdowns and actual employee theft. The rapidly changing and uncertain prices of diesel fuel can make things even worse. In, addition, these kinds of companies are liable for what can be big losses when someone or something goes wrong. Despite this, they do still have to pay license fees, permit fees, State regulation fees, taxes, employees and insurance. These costs are due even if the truck is not working on the highway or it is sitting still at a truck stop. To attempt to make a profit, hauling and trucking firms try to lower their costs such as these by cutting corners where and when they can. This kind of “corner cutting” can create violations of local, state and federal safety regulations and rules and other legal issues related to safety. When rules violations happen, these trucking and hauling companies must pay compensate to those people whom they hurt with their cutting corners.

Liability in truck accident cases centers on the all of the parties who might have liability for the damages caused by the collision. The failure to sue a party who is partially liable for your accident could well affect your recovery of sufficient compensation to make you as whole as the law allows for your injuries and/or damages. Truck accidents are usually different from car crashes in key ways. One is that in an auto accident, the driver generally owns the vehicle and is potentially the only liable party for your accident and your damages. In a truck accident, there can be multiple parties legally responsible for your injuries, including the trucking company, the trailer owner, truck cab owner, whatever company loaded the truck or the truck driver him or herself.

Whether you yourself were involved in the truck accident or lost someone in the truck accident, we are ready and waiting to consult with you and investigate the loss and any potential damages. Carabin Shaw understands that no amount of money or compensation can really replace any loss of a loved one, but the people who broke their legal and contractual obligation to see to the safety of other people on the highway need to pay something for breaching their moral obligations and legal duties.
