The Need For A Skillful Attorney To Handle Your Arlington Truck Accident Claim

The Continued Rise In Texas 18-Wheeler Accidents

Ask any driver and they will likely agree that Texas highways and roads have many more semis and 18-wheeler commercial trucks these days than in years past. Why? The discovery of oil has produced fracking production and increased the need for commercial vehicles to haul materials, equipment and water.

Sadly, this has led to a rise in truck accidents. Over the past decade, Texas has seen a dramatic rise in semitrucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and garbage trucks on highways all across the state.

In 2009, roughly 350 commercial vehicle accidents occurred on Texas roadways. By 2013, that number increased by 51 percent, rising to just over 530 incidents.

And it's likely individuals in these accidents are suffering much more catastrophic injuries simply because of the size of a commercial vehicle and the damage it can do.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Due to the damage these vehicles can and do cause, many people have also lost their lives. Fortunately, the state of Texas allows a surviving relative to bring a wrongful death lawsuit if the "wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default" of a driver causes the death of another.
