Texas Truck Accident Attorneys
An investigation into this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck collided with the driver’s side of a van and killed the driver of the van. The driver of the semi-truck that caused the accident, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon the occupants that were injured.
With any Texas road, there are various commercial trucks that travel on a daily and nightly basis. 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. If you or a loved one were involved in a truck accident, it is important to contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options.
