Accidents Involving Mexican Trucks and NAFTA Trucks in Texas
One issue that has arisen with truck accidents in Texas is the connection between those accidents, Mexican trucks and NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement). When NAFTA went into effect on January 1, 1994, trucking lines opened up between Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
When a vehicle from Texas gets involved in an accident in Houston, the laws and regulations governing that vehicle are clear. However, when the truck is from Mexico, it is not always as easy to determine those regulations and how they will impact the compensation for accident victims.
If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a truck accident involving a truck from Mexico, call a Houston, Texas, commercial truck accident lawyer at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner.
Accidents In The U.S. Involving Mexican Trucks
Certain Mexican semi trucks are allowed to drive between Mexico and the United States. Companies have to be approved for international hauls, but many trucks come from Mexico without approval to deliver goods in Texas and elsewhere in the country. Problems occur when older Mexican trucks in poor condition travel to Texas and are not as safe as their U.S. counterparts.
If you are involved in an accident with a foreign truck, it is important to have an attorney on your side who has extensive knowledge of NAFTA regulations and how they may impact your legal claim. We will thoroughly review your accident to determine who was at fault and what the laws are regarding your ability to recover.
