Commercial Vehicle Accidents Lawyer in Dallas, Texas

Your Road to Recovery Starts Here

Commercial motor vehicle (CMV) accidents claim thousands of lives every year. In 2018, there were 4,862 fatal accidents and 112,000 injury accidents involving large trucks in the US. For context, “large trucks” refers to medium and heavy trucks and include commercial and non-commercial vehicles. Commercial vehicles are not just trucks, though. They include any vehicle used for business reasons, such as:

  • Passenger buses
  • Limousines
  • Vans
  • RVs
  • SUVs
  • Cars

With this in mind, how many commercial vehicle crashes occur in Texas? According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 37,515 highway crashes involving commercial vehicles in 2018.

Needless to say, this data reveals the frequency and seriousness of commercial vehicle accidents in the US. That’s why these drivers should protect themselves with reliable and proven legal counsel if they get hurt in an accident. Negligence and wrongdoings should not go unpunished, which is why our Dallas commercial vehicle accident attorney will go the distance to hold defendants such as drivers, commercial vehicle companies, cargo loaders, manufacturers, and even the government accountable for their actions, or failure to act.

Common Injuries from Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial vehicle accidents often leave drivers feeling disoriented and panicked. They may not even notice their injuries right away because they’re so alarmed and focused on the aftermath of the crash. As a result, far too many CMV drivers in Texas fail to seek medical attention for their injuries until days, weeks, or even months after the incident. This not only hurts their health but also the chances of getting a favorable settlement in their personal injury claim.

With this in mind, we encourage you to get medical attention immediately after your accident, even if you don’t feel hurt. Injuries aren’t always visible from the outside and can be internally damaging. Among the most common commercial vehicle accident injuries are:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, bruises, scars

What Typically Causes Commercial Vehicle Accidents?

CMV drivers have difficult jobs. Those who drive large and heavy vehicles containing massive and sometimes hazardous cargo for extensive periods of time every week are at risk. That’s why efforts are invested into ensuring commercial vehicles, especially large ones, and commercial drivers are prepared to get the job done safely and on time.

However, people aren’t perfect and are prone to making mistakes — costly mistakes. These people include commercial vehicle drivers themselves, cargo loaders, supervisors, and manufacturers, although, any entity in the commercial vehicle industry could be held liable for causing a driver’s injuries.

Specifically, commercial vehicle accidents are caused by a variety of issues, such as:

  • Inadequate training
  • Mechanical failures
  • Maintenance errors
  • Improper cargo loading
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsiness
  • Traffic violations
  • Demanding work schedules
  • Road and weather conditions

Who Can Be Liable in a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

Determining liability in a commercial vehicle accident can be complicated. Even though the driver may be at fault for directly causing the accident, there can be other parties that could have played a role in the accident as well. An attorney can help investigate your claim to help determine all the parties that we can pursue compensation from.

Commercial vehicle liability can be traced back to one or more parties:

  • The driver: If the driver was negligent while operating the vehicle, such as driving while intoxicated or driving recklessly, then the driver can be held liable.
  • Driver's employer: The employer of the driver can share liability if they engaged in negligent hiring practices or violated regulations.
  • Manufacturers: In some cases, the manufacturer of a faulty vehicle part that caused the accident can be responsible for an accident.

    “Ignatius, and his team, did a wonderful job on my journey to becoming a naturalized US citizen. They were there with my husband and I from the very beginning, until the Oath Ceremony. In the beginning, we had a wonderful consultation with Sanjay, where he explained everything step by step, and they presented all the necessary paperwork to the government for each step that we took. Part of our journey was with Anamika, where she helped us get through the first 2 parts of the legal process, and the final part was with Ignatius, who assisted us with the naturalization part. Thank you, Ignatius, for being there with me during the interview process. Your presence helped to ease my mind.”
