Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
A truck crash can have a devastating impact on your family. Even more so if it claimed the life of your loved one. Regrettably, hundreds of people lose their lives as a result of truck accidents in our state. Pedestrians who are involved in truck crashes are more likely to suffer severe injuries. There are many reasons why these accidents take place so frequently. Many of them involve some form of negligence.
One possible cause is driver error or negligence. If a big rig driver is not paying attention to the road, he or she may not see a pedestrian in time to avoid a collision. Another possible cause is mechanical failure. If a big rig’s brakes fail, the driver may not be able to stop in time to avoid hitting a pedestrian. Finally, weather conditions can also contribute to fatal pedestrian crashes involving big rigs. If it is raining or snowing, visibility can be reduced, making it more difficult for drivers to see pedestrians.
