According to the National Safety Council (NSC), deadly accidents involving large trucks are on the rise. This is especially concerning in Texas, with its vast network of highways and trucks ferrying goods across the state every day and night.

Getting into a truck accident can be an overwhelming and terrifying experience, and dealing with the aftermath can be just as daunting due to the legal complexities surrounding such incidents. Turnbull Legal Group discusses the unique challenges in dealing with truck accident claims and what you need to know to get on the road to recovery.

The Scope and Impact of Truck Accidents

Of all 50 states, Texas had the most deaths resulting from truck crashes in 2021. This grim statistic illustrates the potential impact of truck accidents in our state. Due to their cargo loads, large size, and high speeds, truck accidents are often very serious accidents, causing severe injuries, death, and vast property damage.

Determining Liability and Gathering Evidence

Following a truck accident, identifying the party or parties at fault is often challenging. Commercial trucking operations are complex, with multiple layers of potential responsibility. For example, drivers, the companies they work for, and third parties may be involved.

As such, it’s crucial to gather evidence as early as possible. From police reports and witness statements to examining the wreckage and reviewing electronic logging devices (ELDs), every detail and bit of evidence plays a critical role. This process is time-sensitive, as evidence may be altered or lost over time.

Truck accidents often result in severe and life-altering injuries resulting from the sheer size and weight of commercial vehicles. Victims may face a myriad of physical, emotional, and financial challenges in the aftermath. From traumatic injuries like spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries to long-term rehabilitation needs, the toll on victims is substantial.

Legal options for truck accident victims may include negotiating with insurance companies, pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, or going through a resolution process like mediation. Each case is unique, and the path to justice requires a tailored strategy that aligns with the accident’s details and your specific injuries.
