Are You the Victim of an 18-Wheeler Accident?

Were you the victim of an 18-wheeler accident, leaving you with serious injuries and / or damages? If so, it may benefit you to contact our team of San Angelo truck accident lawyers at Webb, Stokes & Sparks. Filing an 18-wheeler accident claim can be complex, because it can be difficult to pinpoint who or what was responsible for the accident occurring.

The owner or manufacturer of the truck could be found responsible. If the tires, breaks, or other specific component of the truck is what led to the accident, the manufacture of that specific part could also be held liable. Most often, however, the person found liable for an 18-wheeler accident is the truck driver. For a truck driver, there are many factors that can lead to an accident.

Contributing factors to 18-wheeler accidents may include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to take note of cautionary signs

18-Wheeler Accidents Cause Significant Injuries

Studies have shown that one of the main contributors of truck driving accidents is fatigue and sleep deprivation of the truck driver. Regardless of what caused the accident, 18-wheeler accidents have the potential to lead to severe injuries and even death. This is because trucks are much larger than the average passenger vehicle in height, length, and weight.

18-wheeler accidents can lead to a number of serious impairments such as:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck & back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
