Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck accidents are among the most devastating types of crashes on our nation’s roads. They often involve large vehicles colliding with smaller ones, leading to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Unfortunately, there are countless instances where people lose their lives in truck accidents due to drunk drivers.
Drunk driving is a serious problem on our roads, and it’s especially dangerous when it involves large trucks. These vehicles weigh 20-30 times as much as a passenger car, so they can cause tremendous damage when they crash.
As a result, accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to result in severe and fatal injuries to those involved. If your loved one was killed as a result of a truck accident involving a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses and various other damages that you face.
