Two Injured in Multiple Vehicle Crash On Interstate

According to 12 News, a crash occurred at exit 879 on Interstate 10, heading eastbound in Orange County, Texas.

The crash occurred at 5:30 p.m. late Monday afternoon on July 25, 2022. The Texas Department of Public Safety troopers reported that a flat tire had a 2008 Mazda passenger car stopped on the road. A 2011 Peterbilt truck tractor semi-trailer approached the car but failed to control its speed and was unable to stop, hitting a 2014 Toyota passenger car, causing it to hit the slowed vehicles in front of it. As many as eight vehicles were involved in the pile-up. The driver of the Toyota and the Peterbilt semi were the only ones injured and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Filing Lawsuits for Semi-Truck Accident Victims

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced tractor truck accident lawyer representing accident victims in the state of Texas. Marc recently discussed the legal options available for victims injured in an accident involving a tractor truck.

"Crashes that involve a tractor truck, semi, or another heavy vehicle can be devastating and cause severe injuries or even death. When full, tractor trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 lbs. Truck drivers should be attentive to avoid accidents. They need to pay attention to the road and other drivers in order to reduce the risk of preventable accidents. One of the most common reasons for accidents is distracted driving and speeding. A negligent truck driver can be held responsible for the damages caused in an accident."

"If you or a loved one has been in a semi-truck accident, you should explore your legal options with an experienced tractor truck accident lawyer. In some cases, it can be difficult to figure out who can be held responsible for a truck accident. It is possible that a negligent truck driver, a trucking company, or a truck manufacturer may be liable in a lawsuit. The facts can be reviewed by an experienced accident lawyer, helping victims and their families choose the best course of action."
