- Truck Accidents
A recent wave of semi-truck accidents in the greater Dallas area serves as a tragic reminder of how dangerous collisions involving semi-trucks can be for innocent victims in passenger vehicles. Even more tragic is the fact that many 18-wheeler accidents are the result of negligence and otherwise preventable.

The trucking industry is one of the few employment sectors to see significant job growth in recent years. One of the results is that many semi-truck operators today lack adequate training and hands-on experience.
The potential hazards of this inexperience can be compounded by factors such as driving while fatigued to meet delivery schedules.
Driver negligence is not the only cause of tractor-trailer accidents. Inadequate maintenance and motor vehicle defects can also play roles in semi-truck wrecks.
