Mercer Transportation Truck Accident Attorney

Mercer Transportation, Inc. was founded in 1977. In recent years, it transformed into one of America’s safest fleets providing quality service nationwide. The company truckers have driven over 4 billion miles delivery more than four million loads to customers across the United States.

In 2018, Mercer Transportation generated an annual gross revenue of $493 million. Currently, the company’s 2756 drivers operate 2507 trucks crisscrossing Northern America. The company provides special equipment shipping, drop deck, dry van, and flatbed transport solutions.

Mercer Transportation is primarily an LTL (less than truckload) carrier, meaning the company delivers mixed freight. This type of trucking is opposite a Truckload (LT) carrier that delivers trucks containing similar products, goods, and materials to multiple locations.

Mercer Transportation Accidents

Statistics maintained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) revealed the rise of three percent in truck accident fatalities in 2018 from the year before. Approximately sixty-three percent of all truck accidents involved a minimum of two vehicles.

Mercer Transportation, like all major trucking companies in America, deal with hundreds of accidents every year. Maintaining on-time delivery usually requires operating on tight scheduling during hazardous weather conditions, which can place a stressful demand on the trucker that puts their life and the lives of others at risk. A small sample of a Mercer Transportation accident includes:

  • Fatal Accident on August 29, 2019 – The Texas Department of Public Safety reported a deadly accident in rural Callahan County, Texas, involving a Mercer transportation semi-tractor with the flatbed. The fatal crash involved two vehicles on the two-way road.

Filing a Compensation Lawsuit for Personal Injuries Related to a Truck Accident

Any individual injured in a collision with a semi-tractor-trailer, cargo van, a commercial vehicle can seek financial compensation through a lawsuit or claim against any responsible party at fault for the crash. However, the victim must follow Texas tort laws to build and present a case for compensation. Often, the process is complicated. The injured victim typically has the right to file a claim for compensation or lawsuit against all responsible parties to negotiate an acceptable out of court settlement or litigate the case in front of a judge and jury.

Any victim can file a truck accident claim if they have been injured or suffered losses, or wrongful death. A full recovery will ensure they have adequate compensation for:

  • The cost of hospital expenses, medical treatment, and therapy
  • Lost income because of missed work: Loss of future earnings due to temporary or permanent disability
  • Rental car reimbursement while your car is under repair
  • The cost of replacement of your total car or truck
  • Emotional stress and mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering

 

Common Causes of a Large Commercial Vehicle Accident

According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), many accidents in the United States, including large commercial trucks involve:

  • Aggressive Behavior – Any driver operating their vehicle aggressively could cause severe injury or wrongful death of an innocent passenger or other motorists.
  • Distracted Driving – Any distraction like speaking on a smartphone or sending text messages is prohibited by law and creates a dangerous scenario for everyone sharing the roadway.
  • Driving Under the Influence – Taking drugs or consuming too much alcohol and operating a motor vehicle can create a dangerous scenario for everyone sharing the road.
  • Drowsy Driving – The demands of truck driving often requires the truck or to operate their vehicle for many hours without taking a break, which can lead to drowsy driving.
  • Faulty Truck Tires and Wheels – Faulty or malfunctioning components can lead to severe issues, including break-related crashes or blown tire accidents.
  • Improper Loading – If the loading and unloading crew inappropriately loads the cargo and fails to strep the merchandise and supplies, their inexperience or lack of judgment could cause problems, including difficulty in maneuvering the truck, jackknifing, or rollover.

Sometimes, the commercial trucker is found to be responsible for causing an accident because of their erratic movements because they are tired, fatigued, or meeting the demands of the tight schedule. In these cases, the trucker and the trucking company should be held legally liable for causing the crash and all the costs associated with injuries or wrongful death of innocent victims.
