Truck Accidents in Houston
Motor vehicle accidents throughout the state of Texas claim the lives of more than 3,600 people each year. Accidents involving semi-trucks are responsible for over 550 of these tragic losses. Accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to result in fatal injuries due to their size and weight when compared to other vehicles. When smaller vehicles are involved in collisions with semi-trucks, it nearly always ends with injuries or death to those involved. Head-on collisions are more likely to result in fatal injuries than most other types of accidents. The head-to-head impact of two vehicles can cause extensive front end damages and cause drivers and their passengers to become pinned inside their vehicles. These crashes are often a result of one or both drivers acting negligently.
Texting while driving, operating vehicles while impaired, reckless driving, and various other driver actions often result in collisions throughout our state. In fact, statistics show that more than 80% of fatal collisions are a result of these and other negligent actions.
