Deadly Head-On Crashes in Texas

Shamrock, TX - GMC Driver Killed in Head-On Semi Crash on US-83

Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating types of crashes possible. They are only involved in roughly 2 percent of reported traffic accidents each year. However, they make up almost 10 percent of reported roadway fatalities. These types of crashes are even more catastrophic when they involve large commercial rigs or semi-trucks. Statistics show that nearly 31 percent of passenger vehicle occupants who were killed in two-vehicle semi-truck crashes in 2021 were involved in head-on collisions. Another 24 percent of these fatalities involve side-impact crashes with large commercial trucks. 

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy. It can be even more difficult when you later find out that it was caused by the actions of a reckless driver. You need to do everything in your power to make sure that you are able to make a complete financial recovery if someone else’s negligence results in the death of a family member. Unfortunately, many families are overcome with grief and often do not even consider taking any type of legal action after a fatal trucking accident.
