With any Texas city, there are various commercial trucks on the road. While sometimes careful, they sometimes result in fatal crashes. A standard semi-truck weighs an average of 4,000 pounds while a large vehicle can weigh up to 80,000 pounds.

Because of the nature of their size, weight, and force, getting involved in an 18-wheeler accident can result in thousands in damages. It can result in pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of wages due to the extensive care replacing your work load. Even worse, it can result in death.
