Was your vehicle hit by a delivery truck? Delivery truck accidents can cause serious injuries and total a vehicle. Accidents can happen for many reasons. This type of accident can create a complex legal situation that needs to be handled by an experienced Dallas truck accident lawyer.
Any vehicle, even deliver trucks, can be affected by a mechanical defect. Mechanical defects can be caused by failure to perform routine maintenance or by mechanical failure. No matter the originating cause, the mechanical defect can cause the delivery truck driver to lose control. The effects are incredibly catastrophic and can be fatal.
Delivery truck drivers are often given tight deadlines. Those deadlines may cause some drivers to make an inappropriate decision, such as speeding. Large trucks cannot stop as quickly as a passenger vehicle. Speeding or other traffic violations such as improper lane changes, can cause unfortunate results for everyone involved.
Statistics show that while only 3% of vehicles on the road are commercial trucks, they are responsible for more than 10% of wrecks. Sadly, many drivers of commercial trucks may not get enough sleep or a good quality of sleep. Some companies break the law by hiring drivers who are not qualified and do not hold the proper license.
