Trucking Accidents Causing Injury and Death
Truck accidents can prove to be especially dangerous, more so than a car on car accident. Due to the large size of commercial trucking equipment, this kind of accident can put everyone inside of your vehicle in serious danger. If you’ve been affected by a trucking accident resulting in injury or wrongful death, you’ll need the assistance of a Houston personal injury lawyer.
There are many causes to trucking accidents, some that are more common include:
- Distracted driving, including cellular devices
- Defective equipment or a poorly maintained truck
- Wrongful death
There is no outcome better than the other, but the loss of a life escalates the whole incident.
