Truck Accidents in Texas
Every year, thousands of people are hurt as a result of truck crashes that take place in the state of Texas. There are a significant number of crashes that take place due to negligence. Some leading factors in truck crashes across the state include:

After being hurt in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by the careless actions of another driver, you may be able to file a personal injury case. There are several parties who you can file a claim against. Generally speaking, you can file a personal injury case against the driver of the truck if they were at fault for the accident. You can also file a case against the trucking company if they were negligent in hiring or supervising the driver or if they failed to maintain the truck properly.
Here in Texas, you also have the opportunity to file a case against the manufacturer of the truck or its parts if there was a defect that contributed to the accident. For example, if the brakes failed, you could sue the manufacturer for negligence.
