Commercial Vehicle Accidents in Dallas
Was your truck accident caused by a semi-truck or 18-wheeler?
Commercial vehicles are an invaluable part of Dallas’s economy. Large trucks carrying cargo often travel Interstates 35E and 30. Trucks weighing up to 80,000 frequently travel Harry Hines Blvd to make deliveries to Dallas Market Center. However, in an accident involving large commercial vehicles, the damage can be far more catastrophic than in an accident involving two passenger vehicles.
Trucking companies are expected to maintain the safety of their vehicles and ensure their drivers are experienced. Crash victims can sustain serious injuries in an accident involving an inexperienced truck driver or negligent trucking company. That’s why you should contact a highly skilled Dallas truck accident attorney from Tracey Fox King & Walters. We’re a trusted law firm with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in handling truck accidents.
Our law firm gets results
When sharing Dallas roadways with commercial vehicles, it is best to practice caution. But a truck driver’s negligence can cause a devastating accident within seconds. Accidents involving large commercial vehicles usually occur because the driver was speeding, driving while distracted, or driving while drowsy. The trucking company may have failed to ensure that the vehicle is safe to drive. A tire blowout can cause an eighteen-wheeler to lose control, putting other drivers in danger.
If you were injured in a truck accident, you should not have to pay for someone else’s negligence. You deserve better. If the trucking company or driver was in violation of the guidelines set by The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), we’ll investigate and gather crucial details to build a solid case. Don’t hesitate to contact us.

Truck accidents are usually more complex than automobile accidents. Trucking companies have a massive team of lawyers and investigators at their convenience. They will launch a prompt investigation and fight hard for results in their favor. Their insurance company may offer you a small settlement. But you should never accept anything less than full compensation for your recovery and loss of wages.
Due to the sheer size of commercial vehicles, they are a liability to other drivers. That’s why truck drivers – and their companies – should be held accountable if their negligence causes an accident. It could take months, even years, for you to recover from injuries sustained in a commercial vehicle accident. Don’t let the medical bills and loss of wages pile up.
