Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
Every day, around 10 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Texas. Accidents involving semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles are more likely to result in severe and fatal injuries for victims due to their massive size and weight. These vehicles are likely to cause severe damage to other vehicles sharing the road, which is why drivers are expected to go above and beyond to ensure the safety of others while traveling. Unfortunately, many truck drivers are in a hurry to maintain their schedule on deliveries and, as a result, they are likely to engage in reckless behaviors that can have disastrous consequences.
Nearly 80% of crashes in our state can be contributed to some form of negligence. Some of the most common factors associated with truck accidents include:
- Drowsy driving
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while distracted
- Engaging in reckless driving behaviors
When victims lose their lives in crashes, due to these and other negligent, reckless, and malicious actions, their families may have legal options available to help them get justice. Reaching out to a skilled Winkler County wrongful death lawyer can ensure your family is able to get justice after enduring the unexpected loss of a loved one.
