Large Truck AccidentsAs most drivers know, accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and deadly in the U.S. The most recently available statistics (2007) revealed that 4,584 large trucks (weighing 10,000 pounds or more) were involved in fatal crashes.
The necessary litigation process only makes matters more complicated, as a variety of commercial vehicle regulations come into play. At The Law Offices of Regis Mullen & Shane Mullen, Inc., we have a thorough grasp on said regulations, state and federal alike. Additionally, we can quickly and easily obtain data on the following commercial vehicle accident commonalities:
- Vehicle safety
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive hours of service
- Blood alcohol levels Â
Because these are recorded and maintained, we can quickly access the data specifically related to the vehicle and driver in question, as well as pertinent information related to the Texas transportation code. This information can be vital in proving and winning your case.
However, quick action is imperative on your part; in Texas, trucking companies are only required to maintain these for up to six months. Itâ€™s also important that you:
- Preserve evidence carefully
- Remember the events clearly
- Enable expert witnesses and physicians to evaluate injuries and damages
