Texas: The National Leader in Truck Accidents

In 2017, large trucks were in 150,000+ collisions, injured 75,000+ people, and killed over 4,500. Of every state, Texas had the most truck accidents by far. With millions of commercial vehicles on the road weighing over 10,000 pounds, truck collisions are a public health issue. Large trucks make up less than 5% of the vehicles on the road, but are involved in 11% of the traffic fatalities every year. Truck collisions are more devastating than any car crash—and truck companies need to take that seriously.

Research indicates that 1 in 4 trucking fatalities occurred when a driver was hauling for 17 hours or longer. Working longer and longer hours is the only way that some truckers are making a living—it's also the reason that 5,000+ people die in 18-wheeler accidents every year. Around 700 of them will be truck drivers. Our AAA Cooper truck accident attorneys want to do something about it.

Common Questions

  • Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?

    Pay-by-mile incentivizes drivers to haul as fast and for as long as they can. In trucking school, drivers are told that if they're as efficient as possible, sleeping minimally and taking breaks infrequently, they'll be able to make a good living. New drivers aren't trained on how to load their own trailers, making them dependent on whomever the freight provider hires to load it. Drivers are sold solutions that minimize their involvement in the process—all they're told to do is haul for long stretches, resent federally-regulated rests and resets, and stretch their hours of service to the limit. This has created an industry of exhausted, overworked drivers who are barely making enough to make a living. All of us are paying for their exhaustion—for instance, experts estimate that 1 in 8 truck crashes are caused by fatigue. The number may be even higher, as drivers often don't report fatigue voluntarily.
  • Who Is Responsible for a Truck Accident?

    It depends. In most cases, the truck driver involved in your accident will be a direct employee for the trucking or shipping company, which makes the company legally and financially liable for your injuries. However, there are many truck drivers out there who are “self-employed contractors,” who are technically not trucking company employees. Regardless, if your lawyer can prove that the trucking contractor was leasing the truck from the shipping company and did not have control over how their work was conducted, you may be able to prove that there was an employer-employee relationship.
  • How Do I Rebuild My Life After a Truck Accident?

    When a trucking accident happens, the company immediately sends out investigators to cover their liability and sweep the causes of the accident under the rug. Regular people and employees deserve to have their own investigator working to reveal why they were injured in a devastating truck accident. That's what our AAA Cooper truck accident lawyers provide.
