Texas drivers are all too familiar with what it is like to be in the middle of a long double lane of semitrailer trucks on the freeways. It is frustrating at best and can be catastrophic at worst.
If the accidents involving semi-trucks that are known to occur in or around San Antonio are known for one thing, it is devastation. These massive vehicles have such destructive potential due to their size that one can almost assume there will be serious injuries to their drivers or the occupants of the vehicles they collide with. For such harm not to occur in such an accident may certainly come as a pleasant surprise.
If you are involved in any accident in San Antonio, then you may think that you do not have to look beyond the person who caused it to assign liability. In most cases, you would likely be correct. However, many of the clients that we here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C. have worked with in the past have come to us with stories detailing how the actions of third parties contributed to their accidents. Oftentimes, that third part is an employer who is either ignoring the negligent action of an employee, or pushing said employee to the point of committing egregious errors. It is in these scenarios when the concept of vicarious liability comes into play.
