According to the Texas Department of Transportation, last year, more than 29,000 commercial motor vehicle (CMV) accidents and injuries occurred on our Texas roadways. Typically, when a tractor-trailer truck is involved in an accident, because of its sheer size, the damage and injuries tend to be more significant than accidents that solely involve single-passenger vehicles. An 18-wheeler can weigh roughly 80,000 pounds, whereas a passenger vehicle weighs only about 3,000 pounds. Traffic accidents happen everyday in Texas, and beyond. The risk of personal injury is an unfortunate reality on our roadways. If you have suffered a personal injury from a vehicular accident, call our office today for a consultation.
