Truck Crashes in Texas
Being involved in a truck crash can change your life forever. Unfortunately, thousands of truck accidents are reported in the state of Texas each year. Although any type of truck accident can have severe injuries, we see many people left with significant injuries as a result of rear-end collisions.
There are many common causes of rear-end truck accidents. One of the most common is following too closely. When a truck is following another vehicle too closely, there is not enough time to react if the vehicle in front braking suddenly. This can often result in a rear-end collision.
Other common causes of rear-end truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving (texting, talking on the phone, etc.)
- Reckless driving (weaving in and out of lanes, tailgating, etc.)
- Poor road conditions (potholes, debris, etc.)
- Inclement weather
