What Our Lawyers Can Do After a Dallas Truck Accident

  • We’ll Start with a Free Truck Accident Consultation

    We offer free, no-risk consultations. We'll listen to your story during your consultation and get the facts about your accident. We'll form a plan to obtain the necessary medical care you need and start gathering evidence to build your case.

    From the beginning, we craft your case to win you everything you deserve for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • You Pay Nothing Up Front

    At Anderson Injury Lawyers, there are no costs upfront because we work on a contingency basis. You won't owe a dime when you work with us unless we win you full and fair compensation for your truck accident.

  • We'll Set You Up with Doctors You Can Trust

    If you've been hurt in a Dallas truck crash, you shouldn't be left to suffer while your case is pending. When you come to us, we'll work quickly to set you up with doctors who will give you the care you need when you need it. All payment is deferred until after we've won.

  • We’ll Immediately Investigate the Truck Crash

    If we're going to convince the insurance company or trucking company to pay what's fair, words alone won't be enough. We'll need to prove that the truck driver caused the collision and your injuries. Since evidence like the truck driver's log, skid marks, debris, vehicle damage, and video camera recordings tend to disappear quickly, fast action is critical to success. That's why we make investigation a top priority.

  • We’ll Fight the Insurance and Trucking Company

    Insurance providers that represent trucking companies in Dallas are known for making it hard to hold those at fault accountable. We have a deep understanding of Texas injury law and state and federal trucking regulations, and we use our experience to negotiate on your behalf. If those involved refuse to cooperate, we'll take them to court.

  • We’ll Win What You Deserve for Your Injuries

    We are well-versed in Texas personal injury law and understand how much is at stake after a Dallas truck accident: your physical health, financial security, and emotional well-being. We always pursue maximum compensation for every one of our clients, and we'll do the same for you.

Commercial Trucks & Regulations

Whether you were involved in a semi-truck accident or a crash with another type of large commercial truck in Dallas, we are here to help you. At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we will fight for you if you’ve been injured by any type of truck, including:

Types of Trucks

We will fight for you if you've been injured by any type of truck, including:

  • Semi-trucks/18-wheelers
  • Garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Delivery trucks
  • Mail trucks
  • Flatbeds
  • Cement mixers
  • Tow trucks
  • Refrigerator trucks
  • Tankers
  • Hazardous materials (Hazmat) vehicles
  • Mobile cranes
  • Agricultural vehicles
  • Construction vehicles
  • Oversized trucks

Trucking Regulations

Commercial vehicles are highly regulated by federal law. Both truckers and trucking companies must adhere to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. Additionally, truck drivers need a commercial driver's license to be allowed behind the wheel.

When our clients are hurt in a trucking crash, our attorneys look to determine whether the trucking company or driver was compliant with all FMCSA regulations. If these parties violated one or more regulations, we could often use this to prove their negligence and liability.

Many of our clients' accidents occurred while driving in passenger vehicles. However, we also represent victims riding a motorcycle or bicycle and pedestrians and passengers who were injured in a wreck while on public transportation. No matter the situation, call us to discuss your rights and options.

Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

One of the many reasons truck wreck claims are more complex than most car accident claims is that many parties behind the scenes could be responsible for the truck wreck. After a car wreck, it is almost always one of the vehicle drivers at fault. After a truck accident, however, it may or may not be the truck driver’s fault.

Many parties can contribute to a truck accident:

  • 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

Truck Accident Compensation

When truck accident victims come to us, we begin by identifying the liable party and then aggressively pursue compensation for all the victim's physical, psychological, and economic injuries. More specifically, we will fight for compensation for a victim's:

  • Disfigurement
  • Physical limitations
  • Loss of earning capacity

You may wonder how much your truck accident claim is worth. Many factors 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.

Additional Information About Truck Accidents

Pursuing Compensation After a Dallas Truck Accident

There are two possible avenues for obtaining compensation after a truck accident.

1. Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

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. We may believe it is necessary to fight for your compensation through a trial, depending on your case.

2. Insurance Settlement

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 trial-ready.

Fatal Truck Accidents in Dallas

Dallas families lose parents, spouses, and children in truck accidents every year. When families come to us after losing a loved one in an accident, we know that they're going through one of the hardest, lowest points in their lives. The team at Anderson Injury Lawyers has years of experience handling truck accident wrongful death claims. We'll guide you through the process and fight for full compensation.

Dallas Truck Accident FAQ

Truck accidents produce significant losses and many questions that need to be answered. We'll answer the most common questions below. Contact our office if any specific questions weren't answered.

What is a Truck's Black Box?

Most commercial trucks contain electronic control modules or black boxes. These devices record the truck's speed, how many hours and miles the truck has been on the road, whether the driver was wearing a seatbelt, and other information. This information can be used to establish fault.

For example, the driver could be at fault if the black box data indicates that they never decelerated before the collision occurred. This could mean that the driver was distracted and, therefore, negligent.

What's the Deadline for Filing a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Texas?

You have two years to file a truck accident claim for compensation. Although this seems like plenty of time, it can come quicker than you think. Memories fade quickly after an accident, and evidence gets lost. This, along with many other factors, can weaken your claim. Getting a truck accident lawyer involved as soon as possible ensures that you have every advantage to recover full compensation.

How Common Are Truck Accidents?

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there was a total of 32,562 commercial motor vehicle crashes in 2020. Of those 32,562 crashes, 513 were fatal. This puts into perspective the need for adequate representation when you or a loved one suffers from a Texas truck accident.

How is Fault Determined in a Truck Accident?

To determine fault in a truck accident, you must determine what caused the accident. Your truck accident attorney has access to expert witnesses like an accident reconstructionist specializing in recreating accidents to determine the underlying cause.

They may uncover that a defective auto part caused your accident leading to a third-party claim against the auto manufacturer. Your attorney can also acquire trucking logs and black box data that might show driver or employer negligence. In either case, your attorney has extensive resources at their disposal to ensure all at-fault parties are held accountable.

What is Negligence?

Negligence is the failure to provide the proper care that another reasonable person would have provided in a similar circumstance. In the context of a truck accident, actions like fatigued driving, running a red light, or texting while driving are all actions that another reasonable person would not do.

Your attorney must establish the following elements to prove negligence:

  1. The driver had a duty of care
  2. The driver breached that duty of care
  3. The breach of duty caused the accident
  4. The accident resulted in your damages
