- Truck Accidents
As Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorneys, we know that an automobile accident involving any kind of heavy commercial vehicle (such as a semi-truck, 18 wheeler or tractor trailer) is more than likely going to result in catastrophic bodily injuries and property damage. A passenger car, pickup truck or motorcycle does not stand a chance against a commercial goods vehicle, which regularly weigh in at 80,000 lbs. As such, the injuries commonly suffered by victims of large truck wrecks include spinal cord injuries, broken bones, fractured skulls, open head wounds, traumatic brain injuries, and even death. In almost every case, the financial implications for the victim such as the cost of the associated medical bills and lost income are going to be enormous.
Since the DFW metroplex is such a large metropolitan area, it inevitably sees a large amount of trucks traveling through and within the region on a daily basis along I-35, I-20, I-30, I-45, I-635 and I-820. Many interstate and international trucks often pass through the North Texas region traveling to and from Mexcio, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, Arkansas, Colorado, etc.
If you or someone you love has seriously been injured in a multi-vehicle crash caused by the negligence of a motor carrier company or trucker, Texas law gives you the right to pursue adequate and fair financial compensation. With the aid of an experienced DFW injury lawyer, you can seek damages to cover all past and future medical bills associated with the accident, lost salary/wages or other income you’ve missed out on due to your injuries, as well as compensation for the very real pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life you have experienced as a result of your injuries.
The good news for those severely injured in a truck collision is that trucking companies do not have small insurance policies which we commonly see in other traffic accidents. In almost every case there is more than sufficient insurance available to make sure you can get the full compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, just because the money is available it doesn’t mean that you’re automatically going to get it. The motor carrier and their insurance company are likely going to put up a fight to protect their profits and they will try to pay you as little money as possible. Having an experienced Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorney on your side is a must if you hope to recover the maximum possible settlement.
