Thousands of large trucks and eighteen-wheelers travel throughout the Dallas metroplex each week, and although the majority of truck drivers receive special training to operate these massive motor vehicles, they are susceptible to the same moments of inattention and other negligence that can cause dangerous high-speed accidents with other vehicles on the road. Unfortunately, the devastation that large trucks can cause to other motorists is often severe or fatal.
In 2012 alone, 3,921 people died and 104,000 people were injured in crashes involving large trucks. In the United States, 333,000 large trucks were involved in traffic crashes that year. Those are shockingly high statistics, and unfortunately, Dallas is not spared from the injuries and loss of life that result from the thousands of large trucks that travel through the metroplex in a given week.
At Reed Law, PLLC, our attorneys represent victims who have been severely injured in accidents involving large trucks and eighteen-wheelers and the families of victims who have lost their lives in such accidents. If you have been seriously injured in an accident with a large truck, you undoubtedly have questions that only an experienced truck accident attorney can answer, and we have the answers you need to obtain the compensation you deserve.
Accidents involving large trucks are often more complicated than those involving private motorists, because the company responsible for the truck and its cargo, as well as its insurance company, have a financial interest in compensating you as little as possible to protect their bottom line. Furthermore, the drivers and the trucks are subject to extremely strict federal regulations that require the skill of an attorney experienced in handling legal claims against large trucking companies to ensure that every component of liability is properly addressed and preserved.
The injuries sustained by motorists in a truck collision are often more catastrophic than those in an accident with another automobile, including:
- Neck and Back Injury
- Head Trauma
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Bone Fractures
