Fort Worth has always had heavy 18-wheeler traffic. As the traffic continues in increase in Fort Worth and Tarrant County, so do the accidents involving 18-wheelers.

In 2014, 33,061 crashes and injuries involved commercial motor vehicles, including 18-wheelers and semi trucks, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Commercial motor vehicles include 18-wheelers, semi trucks, fuel tankers, big rigs, and freight trucks. An accident involving an 18-wheeler and a car often cause serious injuries and death. The injuries from 18-wheeler accidents may require extensive medical care and expense. 18-wheeler wreck injuries often include:

  • head injuries
  • broken bones
  • herniated discs
  • permanent scars

There’s No Time to Waste in Truck Accident Cases

Commercial transportation is a major U.S. industry with a vested interest in limiting corporate liability in truck accident cases. Many large truck companies maintain rapid response teams of trucking company attorneys, accident investigators and insurance adjusters on call 24 hours a day to respond immediately in the event of a serious or fatal truck accident.

The trucking companies have one goal: 
Minimize the ability of the victims to seek the compensation they may be due.

Truck Accident Victims Often Require Medical Attention

As far as your injuries are concerned, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. If treatment is delayed, the defendant may argue that it was not his negligent conduct that caused your injury, but rather something that occurred between the time of the accident and your visit to the doctor.

Typically the injuries will be serious, even life changing. Those large vehicles will cause severe damage to your vehicle and serious injuries to you physically, as well as emotionally. Typical injuries resulting from an accident with an 18-wheeler include head injuries, multiple broken bones, internal injuries, and lacerations, severe injuries to the neck and back, and many other debilitating injuries resulting in permanent disability, and possibly even death. These grave injuries will require extensive medical care and treatment.

You and your family should not be financially burdened with medical bills, loss of income, and other accident related damages due to the careless and negligent actions of the truck driver or trucking company. The Law Office of Brian Hargrove will consult with your doctors and other health care specialists to be certain that your physical recovery is the priority and you are receiving the medical care and treatment required.

Our qualified and experienced truck accident attorney will also work with life care planners and economists to ensure that your future medical care and financial burdens will be properly recognized so that we will be able to achieve the maximum settlement.

18-Wheeler Trucking Accidents

Semi-trucks significantly outsize and outweigh passenger vehicles.  Any collision with a semi-truck on the highways is likely to result in catastrophic injuries to the occupants of the passenger vehicle.  Proving a case of negligence against a trucking company requires special attention to certain issues unique to the trucking case, which a qualified and experienced personal injury trial attorney will be aware of.

Most trucking accidents are due to a combination of driver error and equipment maintenance, often compounded by traffic or weather conditions at the time. Some of the most common causes are:

18-Wheeler Accidents Are Often Caused By Driver Error

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving too fast for the given road conditions
  • Overly-aggressive driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Inexperienced or untrained driver

18-Wheeler Accidents Can Be Caused by Equipment or Other Company Error

  • Poorly-maintained brakes
  • Poorly-maintained, inadequate or absent safety equipment
  • Oversized vehicle
  • Vehicle is overloaded or improperly loaded
