Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck accidents are the cause of thousands of injuries in the state of Texas each year. We see countless accidents take place that leave victims with devastating injuries that impact their lives forever. Many of these accidents are preventable.
Cargo shifts and tire blowouts are two of the most common causes of truck crashes. They account for a combined total of nearly 30% of all truck crashes. Cargo shifting occurs when the load in the truck is not properly secured, causing it to move around during transit. This can lead to the truck tipping over or losing control. Tire blowouts happen when the tires on the truck are not properly inflated or maintained, causing them to burst while the truck is moving. This can also lead to a loss of control and potentially a crash.
After a truck accident, you may be able to recover compensation for some of the damages that you face. This can include compensation for lost earning capacity, repairs for your vehicle, medical expenses, and even the loss of enjoyment of life. You may also be able to recover punitive damages if the truck driver was negligent. If you were a passenger in the truck, you may be able to recover damages from the trucking company.
It is important that you reach out to a truck accident lawyer as soon as possible to protect your legal rights and justice.
