Dallas 18-Wheeler & Truck Accident Lawyer

Proven Results for Victims of Truck Accidents

Almost every single injury lawyer in Texas will accept the representation of a client with an important 18-wheeler case. Most will, in fact, market for those cases and expressly list them on their webpages, too. Very few should.

Fighting for justice in 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle cases takes a great amount of the following from your Dallas personal injury attorney:

  • Money
  • Time
  • Heart
  • Experience
  • Credentials

The Lenahan Law Firm is designed to fight these very battles. Law firms with hundreds or thousands of cases and lawyers who litigate divorces, defend the criminally acused, and prepare wills are not.

Of the very small number of clients we accept at any one time, about one-third are commercial vehicle cases. Our experience and credentials are well-established.

Videos from Our Firm's Actual 18-Wheeler Cases

The videos below are some, not all, of the many videos from our actual 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle cases. Please do not watch them if you doing so could bring further heartache. They are powerful. But know that we share them with you to validate for you that we've been here before.

  • Sleeping at 69 MPH

The video speaks for itself. This big-rig driver's negligence caused a fiery crash.

  • Truck Driver Blaming "Mechanical Problems"

The driver of this 18-wheeler was driving down an Oklahoma highway, near midnight, going dangeroulsy slow -- 9 miles per hour. He blamed "mechanical problems" and denied responsiblility.

  • Performance Food Group Safety Director Doesn't Blame His Sleeping Driver

Watch the driver. Watch the brake lights ahead. He falls asleep and speeds up as all of the traffic ahead of him slows. The insurance company denied that he fell asleep. We've included an excerpt from the accident report below.

  • "The Other Driver Came Into My Lane"

The 18-wheeler changed lanes and slammed a private investigator's car into the barrier. He immediately blamed it on some other driver who came into his lane. There was no other driver.

  • How Powerful is a Loaded 18-Wheeler?

This 18-Wheeler was moving with such force that car after car was tossed aside as if they weren't even there.

The Devastating Effects of an 18-Wheeler Accident

In any accident involving an 18 wheeler, semi or other type of large commercial truck, the likelihood of sustaining serious injury is extremely high, due to the massive size and weight of the vehicle. Colliding with a vehicle that could weigh in the range of 80,000 lbs. is extremely dangerous to any other driver or passenger involved. Although all types of car accidents are dangerous, a collision with a truck often results in life-altering injuries such as:

Truck driver negligence is also a common cause of fatal truck accidents.

After an 18 wheeler has gone out of control in an accident, it is a possibility that the driver violated federal or state trucking regulations. Many individuals have lost their lives or sustained serious injuries due to truck drivers who were driving while tired, or who had been driving longer than permitted. Violations can also include overloading or not securing cargo properly. Speak with a Dallas truck accident attorney from our firm at your earliest convenience if you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury due to an accident involving an 18 wheeler or other type of large commercial truck.

We Can Help You Regain Financial Control in the Wake of an Accident

An accident involving a commercial truck often results in permanent or devastating injuries that will take many months or longer to resolve, or will require a lifetime of care and treatment. During such a harrowing time, it can be difficult to consider the legal matters that must be addressed. Having a highly experienced attorney handling your claim could help you and your family avoid any serious financial difficulty in paying medical bills, and more importantly, could provide your loved one with the medical care and treatment that must be administered to regain some degree of health.

Our firm exclusively represents victims of severe injuries, and we have recovered many high value settlements as our clients' deserved. Should we need to take the case to trial for resolution, we are prepared to do so. Our legal team is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal counsel to those that have suffered severe injury or lost a loved one to wrongful death. We only represent a limited number of clients at a time so that we can ensure that each case and the family involved are given the personal care and attention they deserve.

Filing a Truck Accident Claim in Dallas

There are many regulations regarding commercial trucks, including those involving:

  • Weight of the vehicle
  • Maintenance schedule
  • Loading procedures
  • Amount of time spent on the road without rest

Truck drivers can become extremely fatigued, aggressive, or could be operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The first step in a truck accident case is to obtain the necessary information to file a claim against the negligent parties, whether the driver, trucking firm, maintenance firm or even a parts manufacturer in cases in which a critical safety system failed. Drivers could be in violation of federal regulations. All commercial trucks have a "black box" as well as a written log that must be obtained before they are destroyed.

There is limited time in which to get this evidence, and we will take immediate action to ensure all the critical evidence surrounding the accident is preserved. You need a Dallas truck accident lawyer who has experience, a record of success, and is respected in the area of personal injury law. At our firm, we are proud to have served as counsel to the injured and their families and to have been successful in recovering high value settlements in many serious injury cases. We urge you to contact our firm immediately so that we can take the necessary actions to protect your right to compensation for damages.
