Texas Fatal Truck Accident Attorneys
Wrongful Death Claims Involving Truck Accidents
An 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer can weigh twenty to thirty times as much as a passenger vehicle. As a result, when a large commercial truck collides with a car, serious injury and death are not uncommon, even if the vehicles are traveling at low rates of speed. Of the nearly 4,000 deaths every year in crashes involving big rigs or semis, nearly three out of four are occupants of passenger vehicles. If someone you love has died in a truck accident because of the carelessness or negligence of the truck driver or a trucking company, you want an experienced and proven lawyer to protect your rights.
