Aggressive driving could cause 18-wheeler accidents

According to estimates by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a significant number of lives are lost nationwide, including Texas, as the result of aggressive driving by commercial vehicle operators. The sheer size and weight difference between cars and big rigs limits the chances of car occupants escaping severe injuries or worse during an accident. It is not uncommon for 18-wheeler accidents to be fatal.

The NHTSA's definition of aggressive driving is the operation of a vehicle in a manner that endangers or threatens to endanger other people or damage property. Typical driving actions of aggressive CMV drivers include speeding and driving too fast for weather and traffic conditions. These drivers tend to make themselves guilty of improper passing and failing to signal, using the emergency lane or the shoulder to pass, and excessive and impulsive lane changing without signaling intent.

Aggressive drivers also tend to run red lights, and they typically make a habit of tailgating. A significant number of aggressive drivers become involved in incidents of road rage. This is a criminal offense that involves the use of a vehicle as an assault weapon, or it can be a physical assault that follows an incident that happened on the roadway.

Sadly, many lives are lost in 18-wheeler accidents that follow aggressive driving on Texas highways. Surviving families of deceased crash victims are entitled to pursue claims for financial relief through the Texas civil justice system. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist throughout the ensuing legal proceedings against the truck operator, and, in some cases, even his or her employer or a separate owner of the vehicle.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
