Truck Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 100,000 people are injured in truck accidents across the United States. Here in Texas, we see a fair share of victims who are left with life-changing and devastating injuries from these accidents. Victims harmed in truck accidents are more likely to sustain catastrophic and life-altering injuries due to the size and weight of these vehicles. In many cases, victims require immediate medical treatment for their injuries. These accidents are more likely to leave victims with debilitating injuries that leave them permanently impaired and unable to work and enjoy activities with friends and families. In fact, victims often struggle in the aftermath of truck accidents due to the life-altering consequences they face moving forward.
Not only are truck accident victims forced to endure overwhelming mental and physical pain, but the financial impact of lost wages and tens of thousands of dollars in medical treatment for their injuries.
