Do I Need an 18 Wheeler Truck Wreck Lawyer?

Drivers of commercial vehicles and trucks (18 wheelers, large trucks, taxi cabs, bus or other commercial trucks) depend on a spotless driving record to make a living.  The desire to keep their records clean can often times lead to lies or lack of recall about what really happened during an accident.

In the event of an accident, be sure to get witness names, contact information and descriptions of what they witnessed.  Request a police accident report be filed.  Take pictures of your automobile, as well as the accident site if possible.  Pictures tell a story, it is imperative to get accident photos that include pictures of both vehicles (complete a full 360 degree rotation around the accident site to get all angles of the accident), intersections and whatever other images that may support your personal injury case.

18 wheeler and commercial truck companies are notorious for making it as difficult as possible for injured victims to file claims, often forcing victims to “prove” the accident or claim.  This is true whether the company handles these injury/auto claims in-house or if they are handled through the insurance company.

North Texas courts, specifically in the Dallas area, make it even harder on injury victims by placing additional burdens of proof and evidence on the victim, rather than on the driver who caused the crash.

If an 18 wheeler, commercial truck or any other commercial vehicle has caused an injury to you due to a wreck, you need an 18 wheeler large truck wreck lawyer to protect your rights.   Jay J. Murray is an 18 wheeler large truck wreck lawyer who has handled commercial truck injury claims and trials against 18 wheeler companies, and other commercial automobile companies for over 20 years in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area.  Call Jay J.

What to Do After an 18 Wheeler Large Truck Wreck

  • Make sure that you and your passengers are safe and move to a secure location if possible. Avoid standing near or between vehicles. Do not leave the scene of the accident.
  • Turn on your warning lights to warn other drivers who may be approaching the accident scene. Put out flares to warn oncoming traffic.
  • Call the police and follow their instructions.
  • Collect information from all drivers involved, including:
    • driver’s license numbers,
    • addresses,
    • phone numbers,
    • insurance policy information,
    • vehicle license plate numbers,
    • vehicle identification numbers
    • registration data.
  • Collect information from all passengers and witnesses including:
    • driver’s license numbers,
    • addresses,
    • phone numbers,
    • notes, comments, statements regarding accident and what they say
  • Do not discuss the accident at the scene with others who may be at fault, or their passengers.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and damage to the vehicles and any structures.
  • Contact your insurance company about towing your vehicle, obtaining a rental replacement, and arranging for repairs.
  • Even if you feel like you are not injured, withhold comments until after the initial adrenalin rush has subsided and you’ve had enough time to adequately assess your physical health.
  • If you have been injured, you’re at a disadvantage when dealing directly with an insurance company, which will already have access to attorneys. It is crucial to consult with an experienced auto accident attorney before accepting a settlement. Insurance companies may try to offer a settlement that does not adequately cover your expenses.

Why 18 Wheeler Large Truck Wrecks Happen

There are many factors that can attribute to 18 wheeler accidents. Some of these factors include:

  • Drivers who can net see in blind spots
  • Vehicle failure
  • Driver failure

Driver failure often times is biggest factor in 18 wheeler accidents. Due to notoriously tight deadlines, drivers often exceed speed limits, tailgate and drive recklessly. Many other drivers also drive while fatigued and often with only minimal sleep which often leads to these drivers falling asleep at the wheel or unable to pay sufficient attention to avoid accidents. Alarmingly, many drivers also drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Insurance Hurdles

Our staff will determine coverage for your injuries under your insurance claim and work hard to get you the benefits entitled to you under said policy. Many accident insurance companies drag their feet paying medical claims on time and often times when payment is finally received, it’s not for the full amount. Your lawyer will ensure that the insurance company lives up to the policy that it sold to you -and for the coverage you’ve paid for – providing you the coverage you deserve for your medical costs and suffering.
