LBJ Freeway at Josey Lane in
Dallas was shut down for hours yesterday morning when a tractor-trailer crashed into another car and caused a huge chain reaction. Several people were rushed to area hospitals.
The wreck was typical of Texas 18-wheeler wrecks: it happened during rush hour so more vehicles were affected and was caused by a careless commercial driver.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), commercial carrier accidents cause almost 5,000 deaths and roughly 100,000 injuries each year. That’s far too many people.The accident-to-injury ratio for 18-wheeler accidents is higher than passenger car accidents for many reasons, including the sheer force of the tractor-trailer, the length of time it takes to stop them, and all too often, the incompetence of the commercial driver.
Have you or a loved one been involved in an 18-wheeler accident? These accidents often produce injuries, property damage, and even (God forbid) death. Big rig accidents happen quickly and destroy so much property, it can be difficult to replicate what happened for purposes of determining liability.
