Fatal Truck Crashes in Texas
Commercial vehicle wrecks in the state of Texas are the cause of hundreds of deaths each year. Unfortunately, the size and weight of these vehicles can do massive damage to pedestrians. Pedestrians are already unprotected during accidents. When they are struck by vehicles that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, the chances of surviving are very slim.
Unfortunately, we see many pedestrians die as a result of crashes involving commercial vehicle trucks here in Texas. Many of these accidents are not greatly preventable. Losing a loved one can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Many families struggle to move forward and deal with some of the financial and emotional consequences they face.
After losing a loved one due to a fatal crash involving a commercial vehicle, your family may be able to seek financial compensation by filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.
