Bus Accidents

A commercial truck with cargo can weigh over 80,000 pounds. The weight of a passenger vehicle on average is more than 20 times less than that. The disproportion makes it easy to see why so many collisions involving a truck trailer and a passenger vehicle result in very serious, often fatal injuries.
Statistics show that an estimated 12 percent of fatalities from traffic accidents in the United States are linked to large truck accidents, despite the fact that large trucks only comprising less than 5 percent of vehicles on the road. Individuals riding in passenger vehicles sustain the most serious injuries in a truck collision. In Texas, statistics show that thousands of people are injured or killed in a truck accident each year.
