Tractor-trailer drivers in Texas not only have a responsibility to themselves but to all of the other drivers and their passengers around them to pay close attention and exercise great care when operating their trucks. When they fail to do so, the accidents that result often have life-altering effects and, in the case of a fatality, can result in a wrongful death suit being filed against the negligent party.
