Houston Truck Accident Lawyer Johnson Sees Increase in Truck Accident Cases

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 1, 2007) - Houston truck accident lawyer Nick Johnson of Johnson Law Group, with principal offices in Houston, Texas, says it's not surprising that his firm is seeing an increase in truck accident cases since Texas still leads the U.S. in large truck crashes.

"Texas leads the pack, accounting for almost eleven percent of all commercial motor vehicle accidents so far this year," says Johnson. "Texas' lead over other states has increased so far in 2007."

According to NAFTA safety statistics, over 50,000 commercial motor vehicle crashes have been reported across the United States so far this year. Just fewer than 5,500 of those accidents have occurred in Texas.

Texas and California have continually led the U.S. in commercial motor vehicle crashes since 2003. In 2006 Texas accounted for 9.6% of all commercial motor vehicle accidents following California at 9.9%. As of September 2007, Texas regained the lead over California by 1.7%, a larger margin than in years past.

Johnson Law Group is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and practices in all areas of personal injury law and focuses on truck accidents, rollover/car accidents, PPH/Fen Phen, Paxil pharmaceutical cases, patent infringement, Avandia, maritime, offshore oil rig accidents, mesothelioma lung cancer, and nursing home abuse in more than 20 U.S. states and Mexico.
