A commercial truck accident can often be much more tragic than a typical “conventional” car or motorcycle accident. A fully-loaded commercial truck can weigh twenty-five times as much as a typical car. Truck accidents – especially on highways, at high speeds – are often fatal, and survivors frequently sustain catastrophic and disabling injuries.

Speak at once with an experienced Dallas truck accident attorney about your legal rights and options, including a possible personal injury lawsuit.

Truck Accidents Statistics and Causes

If you are injured in an accident with a truck, an experienced Dallas truck accident attorney can examine the driver’s logs, police and medical reports, and other evidence to develop a case on your behalf. A thoroughgoing investigation is imperative to learn exactly what happened and who is responsible.
