Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck and commercial vehicle accidents take the lives of hundreds of people in Texas. Thousands more are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. In some cases, accidents are caused by high wind and other inclement weather conditions. According to reports from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, high winds are one of the most common causes of truck crashes in the nation.
Inclement weather conditions can make it incredibly difficult for semi-truck drivers to control their vehicles. High wind conditions can cause trucks to tear off their course and overturn. When heavy rain conditions are present, it can make it difficult for drivers to see the road ahead. It can also result in drivers losing control of their vehicles and hydroplaning. Unfortunately, these and other inclement weather conditions can lead to serious accidents.
Due to the size and weight of semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles, accidents in which they are involved are more likely to result in significant injuries. We see many truck crash victims suffer severe spinal cord injuries, internal organ injuries, and trauma to the head. Truck crash victims often require extensive medical care.
The overwhelming impact that these accidents can have can be incredibly challenging to deal with. In some cases, injured parties may have legal options to help them move forward.
