Whether a drunk truck driver gets behind the wheel, suffers from truck driver fatigue or another factor is involved, there are many reasons why truck wrecks happen. On top of physical injuries, such as a permanent disability or serious head injury, some people pass away because of a truck accident. In Houston and across Texas, those who have had their life interrupted after an accident should try to do everything they can to recover physically, emotionally and even financially.
A truck driver was hospitalized as a result of minor injuries he suffered in a Texas wreck which recently took place. Authorities are still investigating the accident, which resulted in the closure of northbound lanes on Texas 360 for several hours. The accident occurred on a Saturday at approximately 10:30 a.m. and left numerous pieces of concrete piping which the truck was hauling on the road.
Crews spent a number of hours trying to remove a highway sign that was damaged and the closure also created problems for people who were driving to a concert that was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. Concertgoers were encouraged to keep an eye on the police department's online updates regarding the situation.
Because every trucking accident is different, it is important for anyone who is thinking about taking legal action to familiarize themselves with the ins and outs of the case. Whether the truck company is at fault, new information is released following a police investigation or other details are involved, the individual aspects of an accident can make a world of difference in the courtroom. Anyone who is looking for support with the legal process could benefit from reaching out to an attorney.
