Poor truck maintenance leads to deadly, fiery crash

For many Texas residents, traveling by roadway is a daily necessity, especially for drivers of 18-wheelers. As these drivers travel daily and nightly to meet delivery deadlines, it is possible for regular truck maintenance to be overlooked or delayed. In a recent semi-truck crash, poor truck maintenance may be to blame for a fiery collision that took the life of a pickup truck driver.

During the early hours of the morning, an 18-wheeler traveling southbound on I-45 tragically collided with a pickup truck, causing a fiery crash that lasted for hours. Due to a malfunctioning tire, the driver of the semi was attempting to move toward the shoulder. During this time, the driver of a pickup truck ran into the back of the semi. Sadly, the pickup driver succumbed to injuries resulting from the crash and died at the scene.

There could many reasons as to why a semi's tires may malfunction, such as low tire pressure or damaged tires. Federal law requires truck companies to properly maintain their vehicles in order to reduce accidents. Whatever the case may be, the family of the deceased driver may be entitled to compensation.

Losing a family member can be heartbreaking, especially if the accident could have been prevented. Texas families facing a similar situation should not have to fight a trucking company alone. Seeking the advice of an experienced lawyer may help in pursuing recovery of the compensation needed to deal with any unnecessary financial burdens associated with accidents related to poor truck maintenance.
