Truck Accidents in Houston, Texas

Each year, thousands of pedestrians and non-commercial passenger vehicles are involved in traffic accidents with larger commercial trucks, semi-trailers and tractors. As the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the United States, Houston has a number of outlets and traffic channels coming to and from the city. A large number of trucks travel Houston’s roads each day: trucks carry resources and agricultural products and transport goods to and from the city as well as traveling the main thoroughfares in the city to do deliveries, transport and tow cars, undertake garbage removal, moving, etc. This bustling city has a population of more than 6 million, meaning there are a number of cars and collisions each year.

Although there are more passenger vehicles on the road than commercial trucks, collisions with trucks can often be devastating due to the sheer size and collision speeds involved with trucks. Each year there are thousands of accidents involving trucks and passenger vehicles and even in some cases with pedestrians and trucks. These accidents are often life-threatening and life-changing, so special attention and care has to be taken with these distressing events.

If you or a loved one was injured (or killed) in an accident involving a truck, there are many factors to consider. A number of various circumstances can result from an accident – many of which are often life-altering and permanent. These can include lost compensation, health care costs, property damage, personal and family pain and suffering as well as lost wages.

The pain and grief can be overwhelming and in many cases, incapacitating in its own right. This is why it’s essential to seek out an advocate who can properly handle your case. These life-altering events often call for the services of an expert who can carefully evaluate the circumstances and with both passion and skill, and fight for compensation, which will likely include health care costs, property damage, pain and suffering as well as lost wages.
