It is not uncommon for motorists in Texas to share the roadways with large trucks. Semi-trucks play a valuable role in our economy, impacting both intrastate and interstate commerce. However, these massive vehicles can be dangerous. When a driver is overworked, traveling too fast or not attentive, this could present risks to other motorists, even causing a serious collision.
The size of a commercial truck causes truck accidents to be severe. Even in a slow-moving collision, the size and weight of a truck can cause a great deal of destruction to a passenger vehicle. This can result in significant injuries to occupants of the passenger vehicle.
