Truck Accidents in San Antonio, Texas
Each year, more than 2,200 people are hurt in semi-truck accidents throughout the state of Texas. These accidents are often caused by driver error. In fact, some of the leading causes of truck accidents we see in Texas include:
Drowsy Driving: Regardless of how many laws and regulations are in place surrounding the time limits drivers can spend on the road, we continue to see drivers push the limits and rush to their destinations. Spending extensive time on the road can increase the likelihood that drivers become tired and/or fall asleep while operating their vehicles.
Impairment: The blood-alcohol limit for truck drivers is much lower than other motorists sharing the road. These drivers are expected to act responsibly while operating their vehicles. Regrettably, a significant number of people are harmed in accidents involving drivers who are under the influence of alcohol.
Distractions: Talking on handheld devices, using cellphones, and becoming distracted by other means can result in drivers taking their attention off the road. As a result, serious accidents take place.
This list is not all-inclusive. People are harmed in accidents daily due to these and other acts of negligence.
