DUI & Truck Accidents

Contact Our Drunk Truck Driver Accident Attorneys in San Antonio

Under Texas state law, holders of a commercial driver's license are held to a stricter standard when it comes to blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and drunk driving. Holders of a commercial driver's license (CDL) are considered legally drunk—whether they are driving a truck or their own car—if their BAC registers 0.04% or higher. This is important to remember in truck accidents involving truck drivers who have been drinking. Not only can they be held liable, but under Texas dram shop laws, bar owners, restaurants, liquor stores, or others who served a truck driver alcohol may be liable as well.

At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, our San Antonio-based truck accident attorneys work with investigators, medical experts, forensic specialists, and police trainers in exposing drunk truck drivers who cause accidents and fatalities. Liability for a drunk driving accident involving a truck may extend beyond the truck driver. Given the serious nature of accidents involved in truck accidents, it's important to recover damages from everyone who may be liable for your injuries.

Determining If the Truck Driver Was Drunk

In dram shop cases, it must be proven that a bar, restaurant, or another provider of alcohol knowingly served a truck driver who was visibly intoxicated. Towards this end, our office interviews witnesses and waiters and reviews bar tabs and credit card statements. In doing so, we can often determine how much alcohol was served and over what period of time. If a truck has an onboard black box data recorder, it may be possible to identify over-compensating turns, erratic driving, and other behavior indicative of someone driving under the influence.
