Large truck accidents are deadly for passengers of other vehicles. Occupants of other vehicles have a much higher risk of death or serious injury compared to the truck driver in a large truck accident. The number of fatalities in large truck accidents has been increasing in recent years. One reason is that these vehicles are often 20 to 30 times heavier than passenger vehicles. A passenger vehicle cannot withstand the impact of a collision with a large truck.
The Beaumont truck accident attorneys at The Alfred Firm understand the devastation caused by truck accidents. We witness first-hand the pain, suffering, and financial hardship our clients suffer because of a negligent truck driver or trucking company.

Because of the size difference between a truck and passenger vehicle, the injuries in large truck accidents tend to be traumatic. A victim in a truck accident may sustain permanent impairments and catastrophic injuries when a truck collides with or crushes a passenger vehicle. In many cases, fires and explosions are common in truck accidents because of the massive amount of fuel carried by the truck or the truck’s freight.
Common truck accident injuries include, but are not limited to:
The severity of the injury has a direct impact on the value of a truck accident claim. Some insurance companies and trucking companies rush to settle injury claims before the victim has a chance to learn the full extent of their injuries.
