Tractor-trailers, semi-tractor-trailers, and other commercial trucks are involved in a considerable number of traffic accidents each year in Texas. On the state’s roadways, trucking accidents are incredibly commonplace. Texas heavy truck accidents killed 649 lives in 2017, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s annual report on large truck and bus crash statistics. The 649 fatalities were the most ever recorded and the most since 2007. Texas topped the country in 2017 with 556 fatal large truck accidents, followed by 103 fatal accidents involving a single car and 453 fatal large truck accidents involving multiple vehicles.
Losing a loved one is never a simple experience to go through. In addition to dealing with the shock of the tragedy and any prospective criminal proceedings, a family will probably also need to consider their financial situation in the future. According to Texas law, the surviving spouse, child, or parent of the deceased may bring a wrongful death claim against any person or business that they believe to be to blame for the death. In addition, an executor of the estate may bring a typical injury claim for injuries that contributed to the victim’s demise.
Texas wrongful death attorneys are aware that anyone or any organization that contributed to a person’s death by a negligent or wrongful act is subject to legal action. The responsible party may be held liable under the law if someone is killed purposefully or dies in an accident that was the defendant’s fault.
