Truck Accident Lawyers
According to Texas Law, drivers have a responsibility to drive with caution and care everywhere they go. This is called Due Care. When drivers exercise reckless behavior, such as the case above, the consequences are deadly. Pulling out in front of a dangerous vehicle, such as an 18-wheeler, is a risky action.
Truck accidents are scary situations for any motorist; averaging a weight of 40 tons, 18-wheelers can cause great, catastrophic damage if involved in a wreck with another vehicle. Pulling out in front of 18-wheelers should be avoided at all costs, since their ability to brake is slower due to their heavy weight.
