At around 5:20 a.m. on Tuesday, February 7, 2023 in Fulshear, Texas, an 18-wheeler ran a red light and collided violently into a pedestrian’s truck. While the driver of the 18-wheeler only suffered minor injuries, the impact was fatal for the driver of the truck.
Tragic accidents such as the one described above are why drivers of commercial vehicles have an elevated responsibility to maintain a safe speed and proper lookout in the course of driving. Proving negligence after an 18-wheeler accident in Texas requires gathering evidence and proving (1) that there was a duty of care owed, (2) that the duty was breached, (3) that the breach caused injuries, and (4) that there were/are damages as a result. From noting potential witnesses and documenting the scene of the accident immediately following the incident to obtaining medical records and trucking company logs further down the line, it’s critical that every step of the case is handled timely and thoroughly.
