Recent 18 Wheeler Wreck Highlights Truck Accident Dangers

Recent 18 Wheeler Wreck Highlights Truck Accident DangersI am a Dallas personal injury lawyer who has been representing those injured during a wreck with a semi-truck for many years. If there is one thing I have learned about 18 wheeler accidents it’s that the effects of the crash last long after the initial impact.

In fact, the initial impact often sets off a chain of events that can affect more than the vehicles that collided. For example, during a recent semi-truck accident in Ferris, Texas, two semis collided—but this was not the end of the accident. A pickup truck came onto the scene and struck one of the semis. In addition, the load of grass on one truck was scattered across the road, leading to a lengthy clean-up.

Sometimes, the loads that semi-truck spill contribute to further accidents and injuries. Other times they impact the environment, such as when an oil tanker truck crashes, spilling fuel and oil onto the roadway, into nearby streams and rivers and into the ground water. There are no two ways about it; when semi-trucks crash they do serious damage.
