Houston Truck Accident Attorney
The oil and gas industry has boomed in the Houston area, leading to rapid growth and development throughout the city. However, the growth has created an increased amount of large commercial trucks on the interstates and city roadways.
A 2014 series by the Houston Chronicle and Houston Public Media shows the state has become one of the deadliest in the nation for traffic fatalities, including in the Houston area. Deaths from commercial vehicle accidents in Texas climbed from 2009 to 2014 after decades of decline.
These types of accidents can be catastrophic and often result in death or very serious bodily injury. Most 18-wheeler and commercial semi-trucks are large enough to easily crush a smaller vehicle, so the accidents often are more dangerous. You should not have to pay for the negligence of others. If you have been injured in an 18-wheeler accident, contact a Houston personal injury attorney.
