Texas 18-Wheeler Accidents

Houston, TX - Injuries Reported in 18-Wheeler Crash at I-59 & TX-288Since 2007, Texas has dominated the country in terms of deadly trucking accidents, according to data gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Agency. A total of 3,903 traffic fatalities occurred in the United States in 2017 alone, 2,879 of which involved large trucks. Texas was responsible for 431 deaths, or nearly 14% of these deadly semi-truck accidents. Considering that Texas makes up only 5% of the national population, this makes it the state with the highest fatality rate for commercial vehicles.

It is not uncommon for a deadly trucking accident to be reported in the great state of Texas. Semi-truck accidents are never easy and can be devastating due to the massive size of these vehicles. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which is a significant weight difference from the ordinary passenger vehicle, which only weighs about 5,000 pounds on average. Even at moderate speeds, an accident with a commercial truck can cause significant injuries to you or your loved ones that could have a lasting impact on your life. After such a life-altering catastrophe, it is imperative to make sure you have the resources to rehabilitate physically and financially.
