Texas Trucking Company Accidents
Brian White | August 8, 2018 | Texas Trucking Companies
Texas Trucking Company, Inc., is a transportation solution for road material that has been in operation since 1976. The company primarily works with the materials needed for road and parking lot construction and operates several types of vehicles to fit client needs within Texas. These commercial transport services could be devastating if involved in an accident.
No matter how careful a commercial trucking company is, there is always the chance that one of its vehicles may be involved in an accident. Commercial trucks are often bigger than passenger vehicles, and their heavy loads create risks while driving and in collisions.
Commercial trucks have very large blind spots, which can contribute to accidents with smaller vehicles. Drivers of commercial vehicles may not see smaller vehicles that may be driving in their blind spots. This can lead to collisions. Other incidents may occur when the company that owns the commercial vehicle fails to properly secure its cargo.
Shifting cargo in any type of truck can cause rollover accidents, which can easily damage smaller vehicles and obstruct roadways, leading to secondary accidents. Unsecure cargo can fall flatbed vehicles, colliding with surrounding traffic.
Texas Trucking Co. transports all materials suited for roadwork. Generally, that means large shipments, which can lead to heavy vehicles that are even more difficult to handle while driving. Rocks, dirt, and other base materials are harder to secure and are capable of easily blocking roads if they fall out from their cargo hold. Larger cargo can substantially damage any vehicles in the way.
Liquid materials, such as hot oils, also are cause for concern. Much like unsecure cargo, oil is capable of sloshing around in a moving vehicle, especially if the storage capacity isn’t full. Not only does this create the potential for rollover accidents, but spilled oil has the risk of catching fire depending on the severity of the accident, creating more danger for anyone involved in or near the accident.
What to Do If Involved in a Commercial Trucking Accident
Texas Trucking Co. delivers materials across the state of Texas, which is a wide area for potential accidents. The company works hard to always hire experienced and drug-free drivers, but there’s always a chance that an unfamiliar route or poor road conditions may lead to an accident. When this happens, the severity of damage can be devastating to the parties involved.
