18-Wheeler Accidents in Texas
Annually, there are nearly 500,000 accidents involving semi-trucks in the United States. A total of 5,000 of these crashes result in fatal injuries, and 98 percent of these deaths are of the driver or passenger of the other vehicle.
The force of an 18 wheeler at impact means that colliding with one can cause serious injuries and even permanent disfigurement, especially those who are in smaller passenger cars. In some cases, victims may be eligible to contact an experienced attorney in order to regain lost compensation.
