Fatal Truck Crash

Most know that tractor-trailers traveling at highway speeds pose serious risks to motorists. However, we often think that the risks are confined to others on the roadway; yet truck drivers themselves face danger.

On Friday, February 1, 2019, the driver of an 18-wheeler was killed when his rig crashed. The wreck occurred in Waller County near Peach Ridge Road as the truck driver was heading eastbound on Interstate 10. Authorities reported that the truck hit a concrete barrier and lost control.

This terrible event illustrates a couple of lessons about highway safety. First, though they are in massive vehicles, truck drivers nevertheless are exposed to risks during wrecks. In fact, most attorneys dealing with truck cases have handled claims in which truck drivers have suffered serious injury or death.

Secondly, this unfortunate incident reminds all of us that highway construction requires special attention. Again, most of us have handled cases in which road workers and motorists have been injured or killed in construction zones. In fact, most construction areas require reduced speeds, the violation of which imposes raised fines. This is understandable, because the message from this collision is that drivers, like construction personnel, must exercise heightened caution in areas where road repairs and construction are underway.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck accident, contact an attorney at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner by calling 713-396-3964 or toll free at 1‑800-594-4884.
