Fatal truck accidents prove costly not just to those involved in them and their loved ones, but taxpayers as well. Drivers of cargo trucks are only required to maintain insurance policies for $750,000 despite the costs of fatal truck accidents often being far more. Due to the purported short fall, motorists and taxpayers are stated to be the bearers of the undue burden. Proponents of a proposed new measure to adjust the minimum insurance requirements of cargo trucks, referred to as the Safe Haul Act (H.R. 2730), say it will help increase the safety of roads by holding truck carriers fully accountable for these accidents. The current minimum has not been increased since it was established in 1980.

The Houston injury lawyers of 1800 CAR WRECK say the legislation could go a long way in promoting protections for the public from the consequences that arise from the negligence of some trucking companies. Victims of fatal truck accidents would also be ensured a fairer chance of being justly compensated for their losses.
