Texans travel approximately 235 billion miles every year. That amount of travel inevitably results in numerous car wrecks that severely injure and kill people on a daily basis on Interstates 35, 20 and 10 and other local roads and highways.
The lawyers at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., have earned a national reputation for aggressively representing car accident clients in lawsuits that have resulted in many record-breaking verdicts.

Recent Texas car accident statistics reveal some disturbing facts regarding how frequently serious traffic accidents occur. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, approximately 3,000 individuals die every year in traffic accidents around the state. Another 79,500 individuals are severely injured.
The Texas traffic accident data indicate that one person dies in a Texas crash every three hours and a person is severely injured in a crash every 2.5 minutes. These injuries and deaths are largely preventable as they are often caused by negligence on the part of a driver, vehicle owner or local government.
Since our founding in 1984, the lawyers at Humphrey Farrington have recovered more than $1 billion on behalf of individuals who have suffered severe personal injuries due to the negligence of others.

TX Truck Accident Lawyers
According to data from the Texas Department of Transportation, more than 23,000 traffic accidents involving commercial vehicles occur every year, killing more than 400 people and seriously injuring more than 4,700 others.
The most dangerous counties for commercial vehicle crashes are Bexar County, Dallas County, Harris County and Tarrant County, which contain the Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio metropolitan areas.
These three metro areas average between 1,500 and 3,500 commercial vehicles crashes annually, which is more than 100 times greater than some of the state's smaller counties.
Serving Texas Oil and Gas Truck Accident Victims
In addition to trucking accidents posing a hazard to the residents of Texas' biggest cities, truck accidents are also a growing problem in rural parts of the state that have oil and gas rigs. Workers in the oil and gas industry are exempt from the trucker rest requirements mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This means that oil and gas truck drivers are sometimes on the road after 15- or 20-hour shifts.
Drowsy driving truck accidents are a rampant problem in the booming gas and oil industry and have become the leading killer of workers in that field. Local residents who are not involved with oil or gas production are also frequently injured by fatigued oil and gas truck drivers who fall asleep at the wheel.
The truck accident lawyers at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., are highly experienced in representing severely injured truck accident workers. Whether the truck belongs to a local gas company or a national chain, we can take on even the most sophisticated legal teams representing a truck's owners. We have a lengthy track record of success and record-breaking verdicts and settlements, including a recent $18 million truck accident settlement for one of our clients.
