There have been a number of recent trucking accidents in Texas and Louisiana, resulting in severe injuries and sometimes death.  There was a deadly accident between a pedestrian an 18-wheeler in Dallas, Texas on June 14, 2022.  There was a crash involving a train and a semi-truck in China, Texas on June 15, 2022.  There was a deadly accident involving a WalMart 18-wheeler and two passenger vehicles in Liberty County, Texas on June 16, 2022.

Safe trucking companies must take adequate precautions to ensure that their drivers do not severely injure or kill members of the public in a trucking accident.  Industry standards require trucking companies to regularly inspect their equipment, including their tires.  Safe companies must also supervise their driver to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed.  It goes without saying that the driver of an 18-wheeler must be aware of other vehicles on the roadway.  This also applies to pedestrians who may be on the roadway or shoulder of the road.
