TRUCK ACCIDENT

There are a lot of commercial trucks on highways throughout the greater Dallas Fort Worth area, and it seems like they crowd the roads more and more each day. 

18 Wheeler Accidents

Commercial trucking is highly regulated under Texas law, but sleep-deprived truck drivers still speed at dangerous rates while their trucks may not properly maintained, or they could be carrying a load that is too heavy. The negligent operation of a tractor trailer, big rig, 18 wheeler, semi, or bobtail on Dallas roads can lead to dangerous accidents with significant injuries, and even death.

Top 3 Things to Know if You are in an Accident with a Commercial Truck:

  1. Pay close attention to your doctor’s orders for treatment. Lawyers for the trucking company often use every available opportunity to blame the victim for the severity of the injuries by arguing that the victim did not follow doctor’s orders.
  2. Contact Carrollton Injury Law as soon as you are physically able. While you are in the hospital, commercial truck companies will usually have investigators at the site of the accident within hours of the wreck collecting evidence. It is important to get your attorney at Carrollton Injury Law involved as soon as possible so we can begin collecting evidence as well.
  3. Do not talk to an insurance company or legal representative of the commercial trucking company without the presence of your lawyer. You may be pressured to make statements or approve a settlement offer that are not in your best interest.
