Austin Truck Accident Lawyer

Austin, Texas, with a population of about 656,562, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 35, TX 193 and TX 290, where accidents are waiting to happen. There are many reasons why trucking accidents occur, negligence is one of them. Truck drivers transport goods both short and long distances, working at all hours of the day and night and sometimes for very long hours. Drivers have to make big deliveries and large heavy loads can be dangerous especially if the driver doesn't adhere to road safety regulations. Long hours and stress contribute to more dangerous driving and possible accidents. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Texas. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
