18-Wheeler Accidents in Texas

Unfortunately, every year almost 300 people lose their lives after being involved in an 18-wheeler accident in Texas. Because the number of trucks on Texas roads increase annually due to the transportation of goods and services, more people are losing their lives. The leading cause of most truck accidents are driver’s fatigue, inattention, or inability to maintain control of the truck.

For families who have lost loved ones in truck accidents, it’s important to contact an experienced Texas truck accident attorney to help with filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
