The trucking industry is vital for intra-state and inter-state commerce in Texas and elsewhere. Many large trucks are utilized to ship or deliver goods from one destination to another. Whether it is a short or long distance, truckers are required to follow federal trucking regulations. Although these regulations seek to reduce fatigued driving or unsafe driving practices, these is not always accomplished. As such, serious and fatal truck accident could ensue.
