Seeking Compensation for 18-Wheeler Accidents in Texas
Anyone who gets behind the wheel has a responsibility to take reasonable
precautions to prevent
accidents, but this is especially true in the case of truck drivers. Commercial
trucks such as 18-wheelers can legally weight up to 80,000 pounds –
as much as 40 times more than a passenger automobile – and are therefore
capable of causing devastating damage and catastrophic injuries in an accident.
Truckers who cause crashes due to some type of careless or reckless behavior
can – and should – be held responsible for any injuries or
losses sustained by victims. The same is true of trucking companies that
send out drivers who are poorly trained, or which fail to perform the
necessary inspections and maintenance on their vehicles in order to ensure
that they are properly loaded and safe to operate.

Common Areas for Truck Accidents in El Paso
El Paso sees a high volume of interstate and local truck traffic, given
the fact that one of the nation's most important highways, I-10, passes
through the city. Other highways, such as the Patriot Freeway, and the
I-110 connector, which brings traffic across the border with Mexico, as
well as U.S. Highway 180, see considerable numbers of semi-trucks and
other commercial vehicles on a daily basis.
