In 2017 data from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) reported fatal truck accidents for the State of Texas. Although pickup trucks accounted for more accidents last year, the severity of injuries is much higher with large trucks.
At the end of 2016 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Fatality Analysis Reporting System(FARS) stated fatal crashes by vehicle configuration. Trucks were defined with a gross weight rating greater than 10,000 pounds.
Under Texas law, both an employed driver operating a vehicle and their employer may be held accountable for all of the damages and injuries incurred.
