18 wheeler accidents in Texas can be particularly complex, involving multiple people, companies and parties. While the driver may have been operating the vehicle in a negligent or careless manner, the companies that performed hiring duties, maintained the vehicle and serviced it may also be held liable for issues with poor driving, mechanical defects and vehicle flaws.
