Brownsville Truck Accident Statistics
We’re a key city in international trade, and many of the industries in Brownsville export goods that need to go to the rest of the United States or across the river to Mexico. With all these trucks on the road, we can look to the statistics of commercial truck wrecks in our county. The Texas Department of Transportation released a report that lists how many large trucks were in crashes in our county in 2020.
Here are the numbers of crashes in Cameron County in 2020 and their respective injury severities:
- 211 total crashes
- 2 unknown severity crashes
- 157 non-injury crashes
- 30 possible injury crashes
- 18 non-incapacitating injury crashes
- 3 suspected serious injury crashes
- 1 fatal crash
Looking at these numbers, you might think that since most of these crashes didn’t cause injuries that they’re not serious or didn’t cause any damages. Just because there weren’t any injuries reported doesn’t mean that there weren’t other damages caused by the collision, like property damage or even emotional damages.
Large truck wrecks can cause devastating physical injuries as well as leave lasting emotional effects on the victims involved. When you’ve been in a collision with a commercial motor vehicle, you might have a claim against the party responsible. Our Brownsville, TX truck accident lawyer is here to help you get the justice you deserve.
Parties Who Could Be Responsible
One of the most important parts of your claim will involve your truck accident lawyer determining exactly what caused the collision and who was responsible. That way, they know who they’re filing your case against and who they need to build evidence against. What you might not realize is that the truck driver isn’t always the party who caused your collision. There are many other parties who could have caused the crash between you and the big rig.
Immediately after a wreck with a tractor trailer, you might automatically assume the trucker was at fault. When you make accusations without knowing the full situation, that could harm you later when making a claim. That’s why it’s important that you don’t point fingers after a wreck and allow the authorities and your attorneys to determine the real party at fault.
Here are some of the different parties who could have caused your wreck:
- Truck driver
- Other drivers
- Trucking company
- Truck part manufacturer
- Government agency
Your Brownsville, TX truck accident lawyer will investigate what happened so that they can hold the correct party accountable for the negligence that led to your wreck. You can trust us to support you through your claim and ensure the right party is held responsible.
