Dallas, Texas (JusticeNewsFlash) — Though most truckers follow the rules, laws and regulations, many accidents occur involving trucks that make the highways unsafe. If the accident is not due to the truck driver, the driver of the other vehicle may be at fault. Trucks are the giants of the road and are the source of many automobile accidents leading to great injury or even death.
Expressing concern over the rate of truck accidents, Eberstein & Witherite, the personal injury attorneys in Dallas, note that in the past years, approximately 5,212 people have died as a result of truck accidents. According to the attorneys, these accidents occur due to:
• Fatigued or sleepy driver

• Inexperienced driver
• Inadequate training
• Speeding, dangerous, or reckless driving
• Aggressive driving
• Failure to yield the right of way
• Poorly maintained truck brakes
• Oversized trucks
• Overloaded trucks
• Unsafe safety systems
• Lack of under ride protection
