The City of La Porte is located within the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area, on the northwest end of Galveston Bay, at the mouth of Buffalo Bayou and the San Jacinto River.
It has a total land area of 18.6 square miles and is the 4th largest incorporated city in Harris County, Texas. La Porte provides a wide selection of attractions including the Battleship Texas Museum Ship and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. It has also retained many of the small-frame houses built in the 1940s.
This city has a humid subtropical climate characterized by hot, humid summers and mild to cool winters. It is accessible by car via the Interstate 10 which is connected to the State Highway 146.
La Porte has an estimated population of 34,469, many of whom work in the manufacturing and construction businesses that dominate its economy. A thriving manufacturing and construction industry, however, can expose motorists and pedestrians to serious risks of truck accidents every day.
Due to the massive weight and size of these vehicles, when those in ordinary cars crash into them, occupants can suffer from severe or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one is involved in a truck accident, your La Porte personal injury lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Trucking companies have an important legal duty to maintain their trucks and vehicles in good working condition, ensure that their drivers are properly trained, provide their drivers with adequate rest periods in between jobs, and maintain a log book or record of maintenance and trips. When an accident occurs, it is important to determine whether there has been any breach of duties and other factors leading to the accident,such as inadequate driver training, driver fatigue, and faulty truck mechanisms.
