If you have been injured in a commercial truck accident in Dallas-Fort Worth or anywhere in Texas, you are probably wondering whether you really need to hire a personal injury lawyer to protect your legal rights to the compensation you deserve. The answer, of course, is yes. Of course you need a lawyer! The multi-national trucking companies that fill our roads with 18-wheelers, tractor trailers and big rigs of all shapes and sizes are used to dealing with the aftermath of a truck wreck. That's right, they occur so regularly that they have dedicated teams on retainer that can be on the site of a crash within a matter of hours, gathering evidence which will support their version of events with the sole goal of minimizing their losses (i.e. not paying you the damages you are entitled to).
Hiring an experienced Texas truck collision attorney is essential. Texas law gives you the right to full and fair compensation for all expenses related to the accident. You cannot do it alone. A board certified personal injury and wrongful death lawyer knows what questions to ask and what evidence to look for in order to prove it was the truck driver and by extension the trucking company who acted negligently and is therefore legally responsible for your injuries:
Was the accident caused by a defect with the truck? If so, was the driver or company aware of this and fail to make the necessary repairs? Was the truck's cargo load properly secured to ensure even distribution and avoiding weight to shift during transit? Was there any suggestion that the truck driver was unfit to be operating such a large vehicle? Did they have any previous speeding or DUI violations? Had a doctor expressed concerns about their physical ability to operate an inter-state big rig?
