    Truck Accidents

    Even with proper training and licensing, big rigs, pose a greater threat to Texas drivers than your average commuter vehicle. Truck driver fatigue poses an increased crash risk variable. Drivers of large trucks are legally allowed to drive up to 11 hours at a time. However, research indicates that some drivers violate this regulation. The amount of time it takes for a truck to brake is also sometimes a factor in 18 wheeler crashes. Heavily loaded rigs can take 20-40 percent farther than other smaller cars to completely halt.  This can be even worse should roads become wet or slippery. Additionally, if brakes are poorly maintained, this may cause them to be unsafe or fail all together.

    According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), there were 3,986 lethal accidents involving large truck crashes in 2016. Of those fatalities, only seventeen percent were truck occupants. Due to less protection and being smaller 66 percent of the people killed in truck accidents were in cars, and 16 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists. The number of people who die in large truck crashes has been on the rise, as fatalities were 27 percent higher in 2016 than in 2009.
