The Stats On Trucking Accidents

It is the stuff of nightmares, but for too many people, a truck accident is a reality and not a bad dream.

How is pain and suffering calculated?


Being involved in a car accident leaves not only physical scars but also emotional ones. While the physical ones may appear to be healing, the emotional ones often take longer to recover from and may require some assistance to come to terms with. But with medical expenses and property damage bills piling up as a result of the accident, not many Texas residents consider getting their emotional well-being sorted out after a crash. This is where pursuing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver may be helpful.

Motorcycle accident in Texas kills two


When one talks of motorcycle accidents, one of the most common causes of them is when a motorist fails to yield to the motorcyclist. This means that when a driver is making a left-hand turn at an intersection, he probably did not see the motorcyclist and did not accommodate them. This is one very common cause of crashes between motorists and motorcyclists and the result is often deadly -- motorcycles offer very little, if any, protection in the event of a crash.

Why are trucking accidents still prevalent?

Due to their immense sizes and weights, trucks have the potential to cause a lot of damage if involved in a crash. Unfortunately, it seems these collisions are only going to get worse. According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck crashes increased by 2 percent between 2012 and 2013, which is the last year information was available.

Your vehicle accident injuries and losses may be compensable


Vehicle accidents happen on Texas roads and highways each and every day. Even when drivers take necessary precautions and utilize the safety equipment found in their cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles they may still suffer injuries and losses if they sustain injuries in their crashes. Their passengers may also get hurt in negligent or reckless drivers cause them to be involved in automobile incidents and as a result the losses that victims can incur from these often preventable occurrences can be very high.
