Truck Accidents in Texas
Every year, thousands of drivers and passengers are injured as a result of truck crashes that take place in Texas. There are many instances where people suffer debilitating injuries and truck crashes that are entirely preventable. One of the most common types of preventable truck accidents we see here in our state is the rollover truck collision.
There are many factors that can contribute to a rollover accident, but the most common cause is driver error. Other leading causes of rollover truck accidents include:
- Speeding or driving too fast for the conditions of the road
- Distracted driving
- Weather conditions
- Improperly loaded cargo
In addition, we see many rollover truck accidents take place as a result of poorly maintained trucks or tires. Truck tire blowouts continue to contribute to a significant number of truck crashes that take place in our state. Truck accidents often result in serious injuries for those involved. Some injuries that truck accident victims commonly suffer from include internal organ injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
