On January 21, 2014, KHOU 11 News Houston reported on an accident that occurred on Beltway 8-North just before 8 a.m. on the previous day. A K9 Unit belonging to the Harris County sheriff’s office collided with a pickup truck and five occupants of the pickup were injured. A sheriff’s deputy was sent to hospital in critical condition, where he underwent surgery.
Fortunately, all parties involved in the crash are expected to recover, including the deputy’s K9 partner, who apparently became so upset when he realized that the deputy had been injured, he required veterinary care. Recovery, however, often takes time and medical expenses can be onerous. This is where truck accident lawyers in Houston can help.
Often, when we think of accidents involving trucks, 18 wheelers come immediately to mind. But pickup trucks, because so much of their weight is in the front and so little in the back, can also be very unwieldy and hard to control when a collision occurs. In the accident reported, the sheriff’s deputy rear-ended a Chevy Avalanche. The patrol car came to rest against a barrier, while the truck spun around before coming to a stop. This is exactly the type of accident that can cause soft tissue damage, and where truck accident lawyers in Houston may be needed to ensure that the injured parties receive proper compensation.
