Commercial trucks are used by various industries, mainly for deliveries, and they are often seen on major roadways in Dallas, Texas. Unlike drivers of passenger vehicles, trucks drivers must go through specialized training so they can operate the large vehicles properly. Trucks drivers are relatively safe compared with drivers of other vehicles. However, truck drivers are also prone to making mistakes, which, in turn, can result in catastrophic truck accidents.
Oftentimes a truck accident causes multiple liabilities. However, a truck driver is not the only person who can be held responsible in a truck accident. Trucks are maintained by a trucking company. For example, if the truck company has failed to inspect a truck and the truck was later involved in an accident due to engine malfunction, the trucking company can also be held liable. Our law firm understands how complex truck accidents are. Such cases often involve multiple parties, which makes it difficult for truck accident victims to determine from whom they must seek compensation. In that situation, the first thing that often comes to the minds of the victims is to sue the truck driver. Sometimes, they are not aware that there may be a third party who acted negligently and caused the crash.
Injuries suffered in truck accidents are often more severe compared with those injuries suffered in other motor vehicle accidents. The size and weight of a truck makes it a formidable force on the road. A truck-accident victim may need a substantial amount of money to pay for medical treatments.
