18-Wheelers Mean Bigger Risks & Serious Injuries: Our Truck Accident Lawyers Serve all of Texas

Trucking Accident Lawyers Serving all of TexasThere are a lot of questions after a car or truck accident. If you're reading this, it is likely that someone you love was injured in a truck accident somewhere in Texas, and you're looking for answers.

We know that the different specialties in auto accident litigation can be confusing. Why does it matter what type of accident you were involved in? Whether you were hit by another car, a tractor-trailer, or an 18-wheeler, does it make a difference? Isn't a car accident the same no matter what types of vehicles are involved?

David Hart, a Dallas Board-Certified personal injury lawyer will tell you: your case is different.

Here's Why Trucking Accidents Are Different:

  • There are different rules for truck drivers. Unlike everyday commuters, driving responsibly is a commercial truck driver's job. When a driver is overworked, sleep deprived, or trying to make a deadline, his quality of driving may get overlooked. Due to the size and weight of the load they are carrying, we rely on drivers to be alert and responsible at all times because if they're not, the smaller vehicles they hit, and the passengers in them, are more likely to suffer the consequences.
  • A different set of laws. Texas residents know that their state is a big place. A lot of truck travel is intrastate transport, which doesn't even cross the Texas border. Since they do not carry loads between states, many of these trucking companies are not required to follow federal regulations. This can lead to many dangerous trucking oversights in improper load bearing, overtime hours, and careless driving.
  • Interstate trucking means more traffic. Not only are commercial trucks more dangerous than other vehicles, there are also a lot of them. Due to the number of interstate highways surrounding Dallas-especially I-20, I-30, I-35, I-75 and I-635, Northern Texans are surrounded by an enormous amount of daily truck traffic. If you're looking for a Colleyville accident attorney to handle your Texas truck accident case, you're not alone: with the sheer number of semi accidents that occur on Loop 820 and accidents due to logginfaceg trucks on 114, a truck accident on your daily commute seems more likely every day.
  • More damage to your vehicle—and to you. Logging trucks, dump trucks, gravel trucks, gasoline trucks: all can be seen daily on 114, many of them paid by the load. When heavy vehicles are in a hurry, rushing through hard weather or rush-hour traffic, they're going to be much harder to stop than an average passenger vehicle. If a truck driver needs to slow down quickly, the momentum of his load can cause much more damage when he hits something-or someone.

Commercial vehicles are also governed by their own set of laws. Due to trucking laws and regulations, filing insurance claims against semi truck drivers is complicated and often frustrating. Our attorneys can help guide you through this process, leaving you free to begin healing.
