Truck Accidents in Texas
Vehicle accidents in the state of Texas are, unfortunately, very common. In fact, one accident occurs less than every minute in our state. Just over every two minutes, someone is injured in a collision. When semi-trucks are involved in accidents, the chances of injuries are increased.
Every year, more than 600 people lose their lives in accidents involving 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles. These vehicles are especially dangerous to other vehicles when their operators engage in reckless and negligent behaviors. In fact, truck accidents throughout the state of Texas leave thousands of people with debilitating injuries each year. Given the size and weight of these vehicles, victims involved in accidents with them are at an increased risk of being left permanently disabled by their injuries. There are numerous treatment options available for victims. Regrettably, they come at an extraordinary cost.
