Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas

These vehicles are much larger than other passenger vehicles sharing the road. As a result, they are more likely to be destructive in collisions.

When victims lose their lives in crashes, their families are often forced to endure overwhelming consequences. Dealing with mental and emotional pain and suffering is only made worse by the financial consequences they face. Many families have to cover funeral expenses, medical costs, and deal with the loss of a source of income they have grown to depend on.

  • Drowsy driving
  • Driving while impaired
