Truck Accidents in Texas

A truck accident can have a devastating impact on your life. Regrettably, thousands of people in Texas are negatively affected by commercial truck crashes in our state each year. These accidents are often contributed to some form of negligence.

Crashes involving big rigs typically occur when the driver of the big rig negates one of the many rules of the road that are in place to keep everyone safe. Specific causes of crashes involving big rigs include speeding, driving under the influence, distracted driving, and fatigued driving.

When drivers travel too fast, they may have problems maintaining control of their vehicle. This is especially true for big rigs, which are much larger and heavier than other vehicles on the road. Distracted driving is another common cause of big rig accidents. Distracted driving can refer to anything from texting while driving to simply not paying attention to the road. Fatigued driving is also a major problem, as drivers who are tired are more likely to make mistakes.

If you are involved in an accident with a big rig, it is important to speak with an experienced Houston truck accident attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Your attorney will be able to help you file a personal injury claim against the person who is responsible. This type of claim can provide you with financial relief and help combat some of the financial burdens that you face throughout the recovery process and beyond.
