Truck Accidents in Texas
Nearly half a million truck accidents occur annually throughout the United States. To prevent truck accidents from happening, the federal government has required truck companies to limit the number of hours that they allow their drivers to work. They also require drivers to log the condition of the truck before they get on the road, which helps prevent faulty auto parts from causing accidents.
