Truck Crashes in Texas

In the United States, thousands of fatal truck accidents take place each year. Tens of thousands more take place that leave victims with significant injuries. Of these, a significant number are caused by drivers who cross over the center lanes due to medical emergencies.

When a driver has a medical emergency, their attention is understandably focused on their health condition and not on driving. This can lead to them making poor decisions about how to respond to traffic or road conditions. For example, they may swerve into oncoming traffic or fail to yield the right-of-way.

These decisions can often have tragic consequences. In addition to causing serious injury or death to other motorists, these accidents can cause extensive damage to property. Regrettably, accidents that are caused by health conditions take place routinely in the state of Texas that have devastating consequences for those involved.
