Other interesting Texas vehicle accident statistics many may not be of aware of include:
- Texas ranks among the top states for having the highest number of DUI (alcohol) related accidents deaths annually
- Driver inattention and vehicle distractions were factors in more than 90,000 motor vehicle crashes in Texas in 2012
- Over 8000 Texas crashes in 2012 were caused by driver fatigue
- Over 39,000 accidents that occurred in Texas in 2012 involved a big truck/ a truck trailer/semi-trailer
Any type of vehicle accident can result in serious injuries, but those involving commercial vehicles are typically the most disastrous in nature, say the vehicle accident attorneys at 1-800-TRUCK-WRECK. When a collision occurs between a semi truck and a passenger vehicle, it is typically those in the passenger vehicles that are more seriously hurt. For truck wreck cases where the misconduct of a truck driver or the negligence of a trucking company plays a role, injured victims may be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
