Causes of Beaumont Truck Accidents
Many large trucks can be at least 20 times heavier than cars traveling on the highway. A car is not a match for a large truck. When a large truck and a car collide on Beaumont roads, the driver of the car usually sustains the most severe injuries. It is no secret that drivers of large trucks have delivery quotas to meet. In an attempt to meet deadlines, some truck drivers may operate their vehicles carelessly. Large trucks are more difficult for drivers to control than smaller vehicles. Other causes of Beaumont truck accidents include:
Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
Driver fatigue and error
Poor weather conditions
Willful violation of traffic laws
It is a Beaumont truck driver’s duty to safely operate the large truck. The cause of the accident does not matter. If you have been injured due to the fault of a truck driver, you should seek compensation.

The Accident Scene
The actions that you take at the accident scene can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. So, it is essential that you take the following actions at the scene of a truck accident.
Call 911 for assistance. Wait for operators to dispatch police officers and ambulances to the scene of the accident.
Ensure that the police officers take a police report. Request an immediate copy of the police report.
Provide only the facts to the police officers. Refrain from admitting any liability regarding the accident. Do not apologize for anything. This can be misconstrued as an admission of liability.
Only speak to the driver to exchange information. This is not the time to have an argument with the driver. Allow your attorney to do the legal wrangling for you.
Take pictures of the accident scene from all angles. Include pictures of any skid marks, damaged guardrails and other vehicles that were involved in the accident.
Gather information that you will need to present to your attorney. This includes the name of the company on the truck and cab, driver’s name and license number, contact information for witnesses and vehicle Department of Transportation number for the truck and trailer.
