Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
Every year, truck accidents in Texas take the lives of more than 500 people. These vehicles can weigh in excess of 80,000 pounds. When trucks collide with other vehicles on the road, the results are often catastrophic. In many cases, we see accidents take place due to driver negligence. Some of the leading causes of truck accidents in Texas include:
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Running red lights
These and other acts of negligence continue to negatively impact the lives of families across our state. Losing a loved one in a pedestrian accident can be life-changing. Most likely, you will have to deal with towering financial consequences. You may no longer have a source of income that your family has grown to depend on. You may face towering medical expenses.
