Truck Accidents in Texas
Hundreds of thousands of truck accidents occur throughout the United States annually. When trucks collide with other vehicles, the occupants inside of the other vehicles are more likely to sustain the more serious injuries due to the size and weight difference. There are multiple factors that could be responsible for causing truck accidents, such as faulty auto parts, tired drivers, distracted drivers, hazardous roads, and bad weather.
