Big Rig Accidents in Texas
An average of 500,000 18-wheeler truck collisions occur annually throughout the United States. The leading cause of these accidents is often some form of distracted driving, which could be due to a variety of reasons. Sometimes drivers are distracted by their cell phones, children, food, and more. Other times drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sometimes drivers have been driving for long hours and are fatigued. Whenever these accidents occur, those in passenger vehicles tend to suffer the most since they are nowhere near the size and weight of 18-wheeler trucks.
