Dallas Truck Accident Lawyer
The Devastating Consequences of an 18 Wheeler Accident
Trucking accidents usually result in serious and
catastrophic injuries. 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 brain injury, spinal injury leading to paralysis, or
the innocent person dies at the scene or within a short period of time.
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. It is
imperative that all the evidence in Truck driver fatigue is a serious
problem in the trucking industry and many individuals have lost their
lives or sustained serious injuries due to truck drivers that were driving
while tired, or who had been driving longer than is permitted. Speak with
a Dallas personal injury attorney from our firm at your earliest convenience

Trucking Accident Claims in Dallas, TX
There are many regulations regarding commercial trucks, including those
involving the weight of the vehicle, maintenance schedule, loading procedures,
and the 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.
