Truck Accidents in Texas
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. Although the vast majority of collisions result in minor injuries, nearly 20,000 victims are hospitalized with life-altering injuries. Brain and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other catastrophic injuries require extensive and painful treatment. 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.
