Texas Trucking Accidents

Goldsmith, TX - Driver Killed, Passenger Hurt in Crash with Semi at TX-158 & FM 1936People hurt in 18-wheeler crashes often suffer more serious injuries than those involved in a typical auto accident. Trucks are massive vehicles that travel all across Texan roadways, and in just 2019 alone, 5,237 truck accidents resulted in fatalities, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). There were another 119,000 collisions that were severe enough to cause injuries.

Huge trucks and commercial vehicles are commonplace on Texas highways, and fatal crashes involving big rigs take place daily throughout the state. When a semi-truck collides with another vehicle, anyone on the road could sustain serious injuries, and these collisions have been known to cause fatalities or life-threatening injuries to victims. The passengers of smaller cars are more likely to sustain serious injuries.

The trucking industry makes a concerted effort to reduce the amount of compensation money awarded to accident victims.
