Holding Trucking Companies Responsible for Your Injuries
Every driver on the road is required to exercise a “reasonable duty of care” whenever they turn on their vehicles. That means each driver is responsible for their own driving and how it affects others—especially in an accident. Professional drivers are held to an even higher standard. For example, in Texas commercial drivers must abide by a blood alcohol driving of .04%, even if driving a personal vehicle. If an 18-wheeler accident caused you or a loved one harm, the trucking accident attorneys at BCH have the experience and skill to hold trucking companies liable for your injuries and recovery. If there was any fault that led to the accident—maintenance, driver error, or poor hiring practices—then we will be able to present those facts in court and fight for compensation on your behalf.

The Possible Causes of Trucking Accidents
With millions of miles traveled every year, fatal accidents are an annual part of the trucking industry. Most of these deaths are not truckers themselves. In fatal accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks, 97% of deaths were non-occupants of the truck: other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.
Truck accidents are caused by various factors, including:
- Inexperienced drivers
- Fatigue / lack of sleep
- Trucker health issues
- DWI / DUI, often with drugs
- Poor truck maintenance
- Negligent cargo loading
- Texting / distracted driving
