Truck Accidents in Texas

A truck accident can change your life forever. Unfortunately, thousands of people are hurt as a result of truck accidents in Texas each year. Many victims are left with severe injuries that require medical care. Common injuries reported in truck accidents include:

  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Traumatic brain injuries.
  • Internal organ injuries.
  • Broken bones.
  • Severe lacerations.

Suffering any type of significant injury following a truck accident can have an overwhelming impact on your life. After being hurt in a truck accident, you may have legal options available to help you get justice. In order to prevail, you must be able to prove liability. Doing so involves showing that one or more parties were negligent and that their negligent actions caused the crash to occur.

In most cases, the truck driver will be held liable for the accident. This is because they are responsible for operating the vehicle in a safe and cautious manner. However, there are some circumstances where another party may be held liable. For example, if the truck was not properly maintained or if there were faulty parts that contributed to the accident, the trucking company or manufacturer may be held liable.
