18 Wheeler Accidents
Dallas and its surrounding cities and towns are growing at a rapid pace. This increased growth brings with it an increase in tractor trailers on our roads. Having these large vehicles on our highways and in our communities on a daily basis means a higher likelihood of an auto accident involving a tractor trailer.
The USDOT and TxDOT have regulations for safe operation of tractor trailers. Often, owners and operators are in violation of one or more of these regulations. Many drivers rush to make deliveries on time, skip over required vehicle maintenance, lack required safety training or drive for more hours than are safe. Drivers can be fatigued, inexperienced and overworked. This leads to unnecessary accidents and injuries. It is no surprise that tractor trailers can cause more severe accidents because of their increased weight and the loads they are carrying. The property damage to your vehicle and bodily injuries can be catastrophic if you're in an accident with a tractor trailer.
