live in a rural area, which even has zoned to NOT have as a truck route. Yet, just about every day we see a specific truck going down our road, as a shortcut. Our roads are not built for this type of traffic. Besides this, I worry more about this truck going so fast, going around curves faster than we drive our mini van with the endangerment it is to the local drivers and to kids wanting to ride their bikes on the road. I know that a truck accident would be so horrific.
Unfortunately these types of truck accidents do happen. Truck drivers are driving too long without taking a break, and their minds are not nearly as alert as they should be. Someone abruptly drives in front of the truck driver who does not make the stop or quick turn he should, and needless to say, people are seriously hurt. Lives are forever changes. Rehabilitation will take many months, if not a year or longer to find the new normal for the now handicapped person. And most definitely, a truck accident lawyer Houston needs to be consulted to help sort out what should be fought for for the days, months and years ahead. It’s nothing to be taken lightly.
Having buried two children, I probably look at things too realistically at times. Yes, accidents do happen. Some nothing could have been done to prevent them. Others, absolutely, there could have been prevention. This is when an accident attorney may need to be hired.
