What Are Some Common Types & Causes of Dallas - Fort Worth Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents are frustratingly common, with over 24,000 truck crashes occurring in Texas just law year. That is why you need a Dallas big rig accident lawyer to handle your truck crash claim in DFW. There are many types of truck accidents, some of which apply only to trucks and not to other types of vehicles. Some of the most common truck accident types include:

  • Jackknife accidents, where the truck’s cab and trailer form a “V” shape;
  • Under-ride accidents, where a car plows underneath a slower-moving or parked truck, resulting in death or horrific injury;
  • Tire blowouts can lead to a complete loss of control as the track zig-zags down the highway;
  • Intoxicated driving leading to driver impairment;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Truck driver fatigue.

Truck accidents can also be caused by speeding, inadequate training, overloading, improper truck maintenance, and many other factors. There are also certain accidents related to specific trucks, like cement trucks, dump trucks, flatbed trucks, box trucks, garbage trucks, tanker trucks, and tow trucks. An experienced Dallas 18-wheeler accident lawyer should know how to approach a case and establish liability.

Common Injuries Sustained in Dallas Metroplex Truck Accidents

The human body is soft and fragile, full of precarious systems that must function properly to keep us alive, and is therefore no match for a speeding truck that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. There are a wide variety of serious injuries a victim for which a victim could recover compensation. Some of the most common truck accident injuries include:

  • Lacerations;
  • Strains and sprains;
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI);
  • Fractured bones;
  • Crush injuries;
  • Limb amputations;
  • Neck and back injuries, especially whiplash;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage;
  • Burns; 
  • Partial or total paralysis;
  • Coma;

Unfortunately, another all-too-common “injury” is death, in which case a wrongful death suit will give you the opportunity to obtain full and fair compensation from liable parties.

Demanding Full Compensation After Your Truck Accident Injuries

  • Rehabilitation, equipment, in-home service, and prescription costs;
  • Future physical impairment;
  • Loss of current and future earnings, as well as lost earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;

Liable Parties in Texas Truck Accidents

As mentioned earlier, the truck driver is not the only possible defendant in a truck accident. Possible defendants include:

  • The truck driver, whether due to distraction, intoxication, fatigue, recklessness, traffic law violation, etc.
  • The trucking company, whether for hiring poor drivers, failing to train drivers properly, or for improperly maintaining their trucks;
  • The manufacturer of a defective part resulting in mechanical failure, such as a brake drum;
  • The truck manufacturer for failing to warn about hazardous materials;
  • The shipper or loader of the truck’s cargo poorly loading oversized loads;
  • An alcohol establishment that sold alcohol to an intoxicated trucker before the accident.

A Dallas truck accident law firm can help you look for defendants who can afford to pay your claim.

$835,000.00
Client was injured as a result of a car accident. Liability was difficult on the case as both our client and the defendant stated that they had a green light at the intersection.

We were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $835,000.00
$300,000.00
Plaintiff was involved in a car accident and had disc bulges and herniations. He ended up having over 1 year of physical therapy and chiropractic treatment.

We were able to obtain a $300,000.00 verdict on this case.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much do professional truck accident attorneys cost?

    arrow-svg

    Zero, if you mean the amount of money you need to pull out of your bank account to hire us. A truck accident attorney for an injured victim charges nothing until and unless they win your case. If you win, your legal fees will amount to a pre-agreed percentage of your compensation.

  • What makes truck accident claims more complicated?

    arrow-svg

    Truck accident claims tend to be complex for a variety of reasons, including:

    • The frequency of vehicle pile-ups involving multiple victims;
    • The severity of the resulting injuries; and
    • The complexity of the trucking regulations that you might rely on to establish liability.

    These are some of the reasons why you shouldn’t try to handle a truck accident claim on your own.

  • What is the time limit for filing an 18-wheeler accident claim?

    arrow-svg

    In Texas, you have two years after the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If the victim dies, the two-year clock starts ticking on the date of death. Exceptions apply under certain circumstances.
