When a loved one is involved in a tractor-trailer accident, it can be devastating for family members. As Texas truck accident lawyers, we often find that the families of such victims suffer just as much as the person actually injured in the accident. The family and friends of a Sweeney man who was seriously injured in an 18-wheeler accident, are holding a benefit on Saturday morning to help his wife cope with mounting expenses.

The man was driving his pickup truck to work when it collided with the truck. He suffered concussions and multiple fractures in his neck, legs, and back. The 54-year-old man had to be airlifted to the University Of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He’s expected to be in a back brace and neck brace for at least three months.

For his family, it’s been a nightmarish situation. Not only are they worried about the health of their loved one, but they are also facing mounting hospital bills. Their friends and family members have arranged a benefit to help the family with their expenses. The   benefit will be held at 11 AM on Saturday at 912 Texas Avenue in Sweeney. If you live around those parts and would like to help, call 979-798-8910 or 508-3651 or 244-2969.

Meanwhile, our prayers will continue to be with the family here, and we hope the man makes a speedy and complete recovery. These injuries seem to be quite serious, and he may require months of rehabilitation and therapy to be able to get back to his job. It’s  great that he has supportive friends who have stepped up to make sure that the man and his family are cared for, even in adversity.
