Highway 80, 30 & 20 Accidents
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.
