Common types of truck wrecks and crash hotspots in Wichita Falls
Wichita Falls got the nickname “Factory City” more than a century ago when the area was notable for having more than 100 manufacturers. Today, Wichita Falls has far eclipsed the 100-manufacturer threshold. The city produces things like oil field equipment, gears, specialty tools, tanks, packaged meats, and solar energy systems.
This means that there are a lot of large trucks bringing in supplies and hauling out cargo, and that means there are plenty of truck wrecks. Common types of truck wrecks include:
- Overweight or improperly secured cargo
- Wide turns
Local truck crash hotspots include:
- Kell Boulevard (US-277)
- Old Windthorst Road by the truck stop
- Northwest Freeway by the Wichita Valley Airport (US-287)
- Frontage Road in Vernon (US-70/287)
Due to the large size of semi-trucks and other big rigs, injuries sustained in collisions are often severe. Common truck accident injuries include Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), punctures, lacerations, burns, broken arm and leg bones, cracked ribs, fractured skulls, Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI), and paralysis.
Who is at fault for a truck accident?
Determining fault in a truck accident is often a complex issue.
Because this is a commercial vehicle, there are almost always more businesses and people than just the trucker who may be liable for your injuries.
With so many people involved, there is a lot of “finger pointing” and delay tactics as these businesses and their insurance companies try to shift the blame for the incident anywhere else. Just deciding who to file your claim with can be an ordeal.
People in this industry are often motivated to get out of taking any responsibility for the crash because any blemish on a truck driver or company’s record could cost them future work – not to mention the sheer cost of paying for a severe injury.
