Dallas Wrongful Death Attorney

Any accident with a large, 18-wheeler vehicle can be extremely dangerous. As they outweigh all other vehicles exponentially, those involved in an accident with such a vehicle are likely to sustain devastating harm and damage. In the worst cases, these accidents lead to the untimely deaths of another person, whether a pedestrian or someone in another vehicle. This not only leaves the victim’s family and friends grieving the unexpected death of a loved one, but also often causes them to face many substantial costs and financial burdens.

Depending on how the accident occurred, however, another party may be at fault for many of the losses a family accrues after the wrongful death of a loved one in a truck accident. If the truck driver acted recklessly behind the wheel, then he or she may be responsible. If, on the other hand, the trucking company or truck manufacturer was the party to act irresponsibly, then they may be the ones held accountable.

Dangerous Accidents

Tragically, truck accidents are all too often deadly. This is due to a variety of factors and types of accidents, such as:

  • Rollover accidents
  • Explosions / fires
  • Multiple vehicle collisions
  • Intense bodily damage
  • Crush injuries

All of the above are potentially deadly ramifications associated with 18-wheeler vehicle crashes. Sadly, in many cases truck drivers, trucking companies, truck manufacturers, and other parties could have prevented such accidents. As such, families who unduly lose a loved one in such an accident can pursue legal action against the responsible party, allowing them to seek recompense for the losses they have sustained.
