The Dangers of Commercial Trucks in Texas
Commercial trucks are an important part of modern life. We need them to get our things like groceries, building materials, and everyday stuff we order online. And even with increasing demand, the rules of the road help keep us safe from dangerous truck drivers. One of the main causes of serious injuries from reckless truckers is their failure to properly secure the load that they're hauling.
What I mean by this is when truckers place the items that they're hauling loosely or on safely on the back of their truck, the dangers of high speeds can cause objects to fly off, and hit an innocent driver. The most heartbreaking part about these injuries is that they can be easily prevented. It's up to truck drivers and trucking companies to stop cutting corners and to ensure that their loads are properly secured.
Common damages from improperly secured loads can be:
- brain injuries,
- spinal cord injuries,
- broken bones,
- internal bleeding,
- punctured organs,
- or even death
