Truck Accident Attorney in Texarkana
Trucking Accidents & Your Rights
A fully-loaded commercial truck may weigh 80,000 pounds – or even more with a special permit as an oversized vehicle. As a typical driver, sharing the road with these enormous machines can be disconcerting. They seem to change lanes when they please and move more slowly than other traffic. Merging onto roadways with commercial trucks can be particularly difficult. Taking these factors into account, it is no wonder that trucking accidents occur and cause serious damage. In these situations, you need an attorney who can fight for your right to maximum financial compensation.

Common Causes of Texarkana Trucking Accidents
Every accident is different and may have many contributing factors, but there are some causes common among truck accidents. Understanding these may shed light on what may have caused your collision and therefore what party may be responsible for your injuries. After all, the people most at risk in truck accidents are those occupants of other vehicles, not the truck drivers.
The following are potential causes of trucking accidents:
- Truck driver inexperience
- Trucker drug or alcohol use
- An overloaded truck or imbalanced truck load
- An improperly maintained truck
- Unsafe lane changes
- Unsafe merging onto roadways
- Truck driver fatigue
