Truck Accidents Lawyer in Beaumont
Highly-Rated Representation for Southeast Texas
Truck Crash Victims
The trucking industry is big. Estimates state that there are more than 3.5 million truck drivers operating in the United States, and approximately 15.5 million trucks. Trucks deliver almost 70% of all the freight and goods moved in the United States—approximately $671 billion worth!
Due to the massive size of the trucking industry, and the natural dangers trucks pose to other drivers on the road, this industry is heavily regulated by the Untied States government. The body responsible for regulating the trucking industry is known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Violations of FMSCA regulations are often behind major truck accidents.
Our team at The Ferguson Law Firm, LLP has an exhaustive familiarity with these regulations and we know how to get to the bottom of these types of accidents, uncovering the truth of what happened and advocating aggressively for victims. We have received accolades for our work and recovered millions of dollars for clients. In fact, we currently hold the record for the largest jury verdict ever obtained for an 18-wheeler “side underride” case at $36 million. You can trust us.
When Truck Drivers Cause Accidents
18-wheeler drivers are paid to deliver goods and materials throughout the entire country. While many trucks reach their destinations safely, others do not. 18-wheeler companies often violate state and federal law by demanding their drivers meet strict delivery times. There are many reasons why a commercial truck wreck may occur.
The common reasons why these wrecks occur include:
- Driver fatigue
- Poor maintenance
- Overloaded freight car
