Fatal Commercial Vehicle Accidents in Texas

Losing a loved one as a result of a commercial vehicle accident can be incredibly devastating. Unfortunately, thousands of people end up dying as a result of traffic accidents that take place here in Texas each year. There are many cases where commercial vehicles, such as buses, are involved.

After losing a loved one in a fatal accident, you may be able to pursue legal action against the party who is responsible for their death. A Houston wrongful death lawyer will be able to help you pursue legal action against those who are at fault.

In order to determine who you can file a wrongful death claim against, you will need to conduct an investigation surrounding the circumstances of the crash. There are several parties who can be held liable for the resulting accident.

If the bus driver was at fault for the accident, then you may be able to file a claim against the driver and/or the trucking company. If the bus was defective in some way, then you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the bus or parts. And if the accident was caused by another driver, then you would file a claim against that driver.
