Many of our clients’ accidents occurred while driving in passenger vehicles. However, we also represent victims who were riding a motorcycle or bicycle at the time of the accident, as well as pedestrians and passengers who were injured in a wreck while on public transportation. No matter the situation, do not be afraid to call us to discuss your rights and legal options.
Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?
One of the many reasons why truck wreck claims are more complex than most car accident claims is because there are many parties working behind the scenes that could be responsible for the truck wreck. After a car wreck, it is almost always one of the vehicle drivers who is at fault. After a truck accident, however, it may or may not be the truck driver’s fault. There are many parties that can contribute to a truck accident, including:
- The trucking company
- The truck driver
- A maintenance provider/vendor
- A loading company/shipper
- The cargo owner
- Other service vendors
- A truck or part manufacturer
What You Should Do After a Dallas Truck Accident
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, we recommend that you:
01 Call 911
If you’re well enough to do so, call 911 at the scene of the accident. You want the accident to be formally reported to the police. Calling 911 also ensures emergency responders arrive as quickly as possible.
02 Document the Crash
If you can, take photos and video of the truck accident. Document the crash scene from different angles and distances. Also, photograph surrounding property damage, any other signs of the incident like skid marks, and your injuries.
03 Exchange Information
Obtain the truck driver’s name, contact information, employer’s information, and insurance information. Provide your own name, contact info, and insurance info.
04 Ask for Witness Info
If other people who witnessed the crash stayed at the scene, ask for their names and contact information. We may reach out to them for their statements.
05 Get Medical Care
If you’re injured, don’t refuse medical treatment after an accident. Not only is this detrimental to your health, but it can affect the success of your case.
06 Notify Your Insurer
If you were in your own vehicle at the time of the crash, you should inform your auto insurance company. This notice protects your right to obtain benefits under your own policy.
Truck Accident Compensation
When truck accident victims come to us, we begin by identifying the liable party, then move to aggressively pursue compensation for all of the victim’s physical, psychological, and economic injuries. More specifically, we will fight for compensation for an accident victim’s:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Physical limitations
- Loss of earning capacity
You may wonder how much your truck accident claim is worth. There are many factors that influence the potential value of your claim, including the type and severity of your injuries and whether the at-fault party is guilty of ordinary negligence or egregious conduct.
The best way to determine your case value is to speak with our accident attorneys. We're happy to discuss the details of your case in person or over the phone.

Pursuing Compensation After a Dallas Truck Accident
There are two possible avenues for obtaining compensation after a truck accident. The first option we’ll address is a personal injury lawsuit. Litigation provides us with tools to more thoroughly investigate the accident and identify relevant parties. Depending on your case, we may believe it is necessary to fight for your compensation through a trial.
Another avenue toward truck accident compensation is an insurance settlement. Our lawyers will address the insurance claim process in addition to litigation. Most truck accident claims are resolved with an insurance settlement, but this is not always easy to accomplish. Negotiating a fair truck accident settlement requires thoroughly investigating the crash, building a strong case, and being trial ready.
