Truck Accidents

Dallas Truck Accident Attorneys

From truck defects to speeding drivers, truck accidents are one of the most devastating causes of personal injury and wrongful death in Dallas-Fort Worth. Most truckers are paid by the mile, and this incentive can result in speeding, driver fatigue from extended time behind the wheel, and deadly accidents.

The sheer size and weight of the trucks make negligent or reckless truck drivers a threat. The unfortunate aspect of truck accidents is that while the offending truck driver may suffer only minor injuries, other parties involved are much more likely to be severely or catastrophically hurt or even killed. 

Colin B. Bober and Associates personal injury team is here to help victims of severe 18-wheeler and other commercial truck accidents. You can trust us to guide you through the post-accident process and help you recover the financial losses you’ve experienced due to the incident and your injuries.

Why Are Truck Accidents So Dangerous?

Large commercial trucks can weigh 20 to 30 times more than passenger cars. Depending on the circumstances, they can extend to 59 or 65 feet and be 14 feet high per the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. The immense force exerted by a truck can cause devastating damage when colliding with other vehicles. 

Additionally, large trucks have bigger blind spots, take longer to stop, are challenging to maneuver, and are more susceptible to rolling over due to their high center of gravity. Furthermore, due to their height, they have higher ground clearance, which means passenger cars can slide under them in an accident with grave consequences. 

What Are the Causes of Truck Accidents?

Several factors contribute to truck accidents, each adding a layer of complexity to road safety concerns. Driver fatigue ranks among the top reasons, as truck operators often face long hours behind the wheel, striving to meet tight delivery schedules.

What to Do After a Semi-Truck Accident

Semi-truck or 18-wheeler accidents can leave you dazed and at a loss for what to do next. Here are a few tips:

Report the Crash

Immediately following a collision, pull over and prepare to report the accident. Check your vehicle and the accident site for injuries or deaths. If someone involved in the accident has been injured or killed, call 911. If no injuries are involved, call local police or the state Highway Patrol to begin filing a report.

Exchange Information

After reporting the accident, exchange insurance information with the truck operator. 

Get as much information as possible about the truck involved in the incident, including:

  • The driver’s full name, address, and phone number;
  • The driver’s insurer and policy number;
  • The truck driver’s license number; and 
  • The company the driver works for. This can be critical, as the company may be responsible for personal injury compensation.

Seek Medical Treatment

The adrenaline rush from the accident can mask the pain from injuries. Even if an injury is not apparent, always seek a medical evaluation after an accident. Remember that failure to seek medical attention after a truck accident could prevent you from receiving compensation if you file a personal injury suit.

Some of the injuries involved in a semi-truck accident can be quite serious and can end up costing your family substantial expenses during the recovery process. If you’ve suffered neck, spine, head, or brain trauma, it’s time to prepare to fight for the compensation you’re owed.

Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

A speeding 18-wheeler or other commercial truck can cause much bodily harm, regardless of how sturdy your vehicle is. Personal injuries can cost victims thousands of dollars in medical bills and other financial burdens. 

Hiring a personal injury attorney will allow you to view the accident from a legal standpoint and realize how much compensation you could claim in the aftermath of the incident.
