A truck accident can easily be caused by an intoxicated driver

Collisions involving 18-wheelers and other commercial haulers happen far too frequently across Texas. There are a number of factors that may contribute to such incidents; however, one that is not commonly considered is impaired driving. When a truck accident happens because the driver was not sober at the time of the crash, he or she, and his or her employer, can be held accountable for any resulting damages.

Drunk or otherwise impaired driving is a major public safety concern, regardless of the type of vehicle the alleged intoxicated driver is operating. However, due to the size and weight of most semi trucks, the damages suffered by victims of such accidents can be extreme. This is just one reason why the trucking industry is so highly regulated. Unfortunately, there are some truck drivers who fail to fully comply with federal and/or state guidelines.

After a truck accident occurs, law enforcement officials will look into every possible cause. This includes testing for impairment. If negligence is suspected, whether it is in the form of intoxicated driving or something else, you may be entitled to compensation. Please visit our firm's website to learn more.

You do not have to bear the burdens associated with a DUI-related truck accident on your own. An experienced truck accident attorney may be able to help by reviewing and investigating your case and pursing a legal action if appropriate. Taking such action may not be easy, but, if litigation is successful, you can achieve fair and full compensation for any and all losses that are deemed recoverable according to the state of Texas.
