Texas 18-Wheelers are regulated by strict Federal Rules regarding how much time an 18 Wheeler driver can spend on the road without taking a break, what drivers can consume, what Drivers are allowed to haul, and how their 18-Wheeler truck is maintained and serviced. These Rules are monitored and enforced by log books, inspection reports, and “black boxes” in the truck itself, which records data like sudden braking, sudden changes in velocity, and the speed of the truck at a particular moment in time. If you have been injured in a Texas 18-Wheeler accident, you must hire an experienced lawyer fast to make sure that evidence does not get destroyed.
Texas 18-Wheeler accidents can result in catastrophic injuries for those involved.
