Deadly Semi-Truck Accidents in Texas

Waco, TX - Driver Killed in Crash with 18-Wheeler on I-35

Smaller passenger cars are more vulnerable to major injuries in the event of a crash with huge commercial rigs, and these types of collisions can be very devastating. In Texas, the number of trucking accidents is startlingly high. The state accounts for over 10 percent of all recorded semi-truck collisions nationwide. In 2022, there were 6,740 18-wheeler crashes recorded in the state of Texas. Approximately 2,000 people are injured and 300 people die per every 15,000 trucking accidents, according to the latest crash statistics.Losing someone close to you is never easy. We never want to think about the time when our loved ones will be taken from us, and it can completely change our lives forever. Dealing with the grief alone can be overwhelming and confusing, and these feelings are only magnified if it is later found that the death was caused by someone else’s reckless actions. When this happens, you need to be ready to take legal action in order to protect your life and fight for justice on behalf of the decedent. However, this is often easier said than done, and it is often recommended that you contact an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer who can help you during the process. Wrongful death claims give those closest to the deceased the ability to pursue a claim for compensation. These are some of the most complicated and elaborate lawsuits, and it can be hard to handle the process on your own. A trained lawyer will be able to help you navigate the process to ensure you are able to obtain a successful outcome for your case. You should never be alone after a deadly car accident.
