Were You Involved In An 18 Wheeler Truck Wreck? Our Law Firm Can Help


Being involved in a car accident is terrifying enough. However, when you are in an accident with an 18 wheeler, the intensity of the situation is certainly increased. Not to mention, the chance of injury occurring is much higher when such a large vehicle is involved. It is estimated that accidents that involve 18 wheelers injure more than 150,000 people and kill over 5,000, every single year. If you are one of these people who have been injured in an accident that involved a semi, you need to have a law firm on your side who will fight to get you the compensation you need to recover from your injuries as well as make up for any of the additional losses you have experienced. Alex Hernandez Trial Law has represented injured persons in Texas many times in the past and we’re positive we can help you as well.

Trucking Safety Laws

Interstate trucking operations are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The regulations set by this entity are very detailed and complicated. This is why it is so important to have an accident attorney on your side. Your lawyer knows how to tackle all of the regulations as well as what they mean, which is actually very difficult for those who are not familiar with them. Let’s give you a few examples so that you can understand more. There are rules set forth for numerous aspects of truck driving, including:

  • Maintenance Standards
  • Driver Qualifications and Background Standards
  • Equipment Standards
  • Driver Fatigue, regarding the number of hours a person is allowed to drive without stopping to rest.

It makes sense that there are so many regulations when you consider the sheer amount of car accidents involving semi trucks that either injure or kill. However, without a full comprehension of these regulations, you cannot expect to get the compensation you so desire after being involved in an 18 wheeler accident.
