Tractor Trailer Truck Loses Axle on Interstate

Posted on - Saturday, January 24, 2015 under Truck Accidents

Interstate 35 in Carrollton, Texas could have seen a serious accident yesterday on January 17, 2015.  An 18-wheeler pulling a Swift Transportation trailer lost its rear axle while going down the interstate.  Luckily, no one was injured in the accident.

Commercial Trucks, like the tractor trailer truck involved in this crash, are a necessary piece of American commerce.  They transport the merchandise you purchase all over the nation.  There are almost 5.6 million tractor trailers registered in the US.  There are only about one-third as many trucks registered to pull them.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for the issuance, administration, and enforcement of safety regulations pertaining to over the road trucking.  They do a great job, along with state regulatory officials, of keeping our roads safe for truckers and drivers alike.

Nevertheless, accidents such as the one mentioned above happen.  Through luck, no one was injured in the truck crash.  Many are not so lucky.  Thousands of people are hurt by tractor trailer trucks in America.  Through holding trucking companies accountable for their negligence, the roads and interstates can be even more safe.

As a trial lawyer with a trucking accident practice, I represent people injured by trucking companies and their drivers.  Trucking companies need to know that the general public will not tolerate any lax safety behavior on their part.
