Truck Accidents in Texas
If you or a loved one of yours were injured in a traffic accident in Texas caused by driver negligence, you don’t have to face this situation by yourself. You may be suffering from painful injuries, emotional turmoil, and financial stress after your crash. Depending on how it happened, a lawyer can help you recover.
Hundreds of thousands of traffic accidents happen in Texas per year. On average, the state sees over 400,000 auto collisions annually. Throughout the country, over 6 million vehicle collisions are reported every year. On average, trucks are involved in approximately 400,000 of these accidents. Alarmingly, the majority of these wrecks are caused by driver negligence. Driver intoxication, speeding, distraction, and fatigue lead to millions of injuries for victims every year.
When semi-trucks are involved in traffic accidents, the damage is typically more severe than in other types of collisions. Those who are hurt in accidents involving semi-trucks are often severely injured, and sometimes, they end up losing their lives. Semi-trucks are 20 to 30 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle, posing a huge threat when they become involved in accidents. Unfortunately, semi-truck drivers are often driving for several hours on little sleep, which can directly contribute to traffic accidents.
A truck accident lawyer can help you recover if you were hurt by driver negligence. You may be entitled to compensation for the damages you endured due to your injuries. Knowing your rights after a car crash is important so you can get the maximum compensation available for your losses. A lawyer can help you learn more about your ability to collect financial compensation for a wide array of damages. The costs associated with vehicle repairs, lost wages, and medical care may be covered by compensation, as well as intangible damages like pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, and more.

The expenses that stem from serious traffic wrecks can pile up quickly. However, if you did not contribute to the cause of your crash, you should not have to pay for the careless behavior of another person. Unfortunately, many crash victims may find it difficult to recover full and fair financial compensation for their losses without the help of an attorney. This is usually due to the fact that insurance companies are known for offering less than clients deserve or, even worse, trying to say the crash was your fault when it clearly was not.
