Truck Accidents in Texas

Truck collisions can be incredibly devastating. Unfortunately, we see thousands of people seriously harmed as a result of these accidents each year. Here in Texas, many truck accidents are caused by negligent drivers. Some of the leading causes include:

Distractions: When drivers engage in other activities that take their attention off the road ahead, they may not see other vehicles nearby. As a result, an accident is likely to occur.

Drowsy driving: When drivers are drowsy, they may not be able to focus on the road ahead. They may also fall asleep behind the wheel. Either of these actions can have devastating consequences for others on the road.

Speeding: Speeding can be dangerous in any vehicle. However, in trucks, they can be lethal. When trucks are speeding, they may not have enough room to stop in time to avoid a collision. They are also more likely to cause severe damage to anything they come in contact with during a speeding collision.
