Arlington Man Injured in Truck Accident on US 277 in Taylor County, TX

If anyone can understand some of the reckless, negligent, poor excuses truck drivers out there, it's other truck drivers who are responsible and do their jobs right. Whether it's individuals or companies encouraging reckless behaviors, many of my clients over the years have been hard working truckers hurt by others that give the profession a bad name.

A key thing to consider here is police accusing the driver thought to be at fault for having an invalid license. Why is that person behind the wheel? Are they independent, or is there yet another company out there putting lives at risk by allowing unqualified drivers to operate their vehicles? Not only does the driver hurt here deserve any possible help they can get, other drivers deserve to know there aren't others out there putting their lives at risk when they can be held accountable for their actions.
