Fatal Collisions in Texas
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident of any nature is devastating. Unfortunately, when motor vehicle accidents involve semi-trucks, they often result in serious and fatal injuries for those involved. Sadly, over 3,700 people lose their lives annually in Texas motor vehicle accidents.
When victims die in fatal collisions, they often leave behind grieving families who are overwhelmed by their loss.
