TEXAS TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Every day, we drive to and fro. We all have places we have to be, whether it be from home to work, work to home, lunch, errands or joy riding. Every time we get behind the wheel and hit the open road, we share the road with 18-Wheelers. Most of us, upon seeing an 18-wheeler, just groan and go about our business. Not too many of us think about the consequences of one of those 18-wheelers losing control, or wanting our lane or any of the other potential life threatening evens that can come about. Perhaps we should, though. According to statistics compiled by the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS), there were 112,379 large trucks and 12,763 busses involved in non-fatal crashes in 2010. In Texas alone, there were 315 fatalities involving large trucks in 2009. There were 6,263 injuries caused by accidents involving large trucks. That’s pretty staggering. Think about it this way, 50 more deaths, and that would have made one death from an 18-wheeler accident for each day of the year.
How We Will Help
If you or a family member has been involved in a crash with an 18-wheeler, it is important to begin collecting evidence immediately. While some of these trucking companies are truly helpful and honest, there are some out there that will do everything they can to hinder the process, even if it is clearly their fault. You need a Texas Trucking Accident Attorney to aid in this process. The more time that passes, the harder it is to obtain the evidence needed to fully prosecute your case. Trucking companies have been severely punished in the past when evidence has “disappeared” while under their control.
