Highway 80, 30 & 20 Accidents

These are three highways in Texas that see their fair share of accidents: Highway 80, Highway 30 and Highway 20. Drivers should be alert to this fact and drive defensively and safely when traveling on these roadways.

Accidents on Texas Highways

If seriously injured,
seek legal help from a
personal injury attorney

If you suffer from a serious accident injury, it is vital to  seek legal help from a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. An lawyer can help you recover compensation when someone else is responsible for causing an accident. Expenses for hospital treatment, lost wages and other damages can mount up and create financial burden. In addition, insurance companies frequently offer low settlement payouts that will not cover your costs. A lawyer can estimate the expenses resulting from the accident, and deal with insurance adjusters, handle negotiations and take your case to trial, if necessary.


Highway 80 Accidents

If you drive on Highway 80, you will find yourself on a small roadway with four lanes, two on each side. The highway begins near the east side of Dallas and enters Kaufman County, going through the cities of Sunnyvale, Forney, Terrell and Wills Point. With the growth of Kaufman County, commuter traffic has also increased.

Car wrecks, 18 wheeler truck accidents, and other collisions have become common. Emergency vehicles transport injury victims to the Sunnyvale and Forney hospitals, and often take the most critically injured cases to Dallas hospitals.

Highway 20 Accidents

Highway I-20 is one of the deadliest highways in the nation, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and an insurance report by The Zebra. The highway spans from the east to west across Texas with exits for Fort Worth, Arlington and Forney, to name a few. Speeding, distracted driving, drowsy driving and drunk driving are some of the main underlying causes of accidents on Highway 20. In addition, road construction is consistently underway on heavily traveled highways. While improving the roads is vital, construction increases hazards. In particular, 18 wheelers require more time to stop and these vehicles have extensive blind spots, making it more difficult to see other vehicles.

Highway 30 Accidents

Highway I-30 intersects I-20 in Dallas, and I-30 continues through Texas to the Arkansas State line near Texarkana. There is a hazardous stretch on Highway I-30 that begins in a rural area west of Fort Worth. The area was dangerous enough that it made the list as one of the five most dangerous highways in 2019. Between 2013 and 2015, fourteen fatalities occurred on Highway 30.

Types of Payments for Accident Injury Victims

When the other driver is responsible for causing your car wreck, you can recover money for the following types of expenses:

  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Property Damage
