Texas Truck Accident and Injury Attorney

Texas Trucking Liability Law and LitigationFort Worth and North Texas finds itself in the middle of one of the busiest transportation centers in the United States. Fort Worth and North Texas are criss-crossed by Interstate highways, U.S. highways and a booming oil and gas industry.

All of this lends itself to the residents of North Central Texas area suffering more than their fair share of injuries and death due to the operations of long-haul trucking, short-haul trucking, and oil and gas trucking.

Factors such as the use of over-the-counter and prescription drugs, speeding,  inattention, distractions, work environment and road unfamiliarity can all contribute to driver error.  However, sleep deprivation and driver fatigue are by far the most common causes of truck accidents.

Truck wrecks require a quick response and investigation to preserve the evidence of the wreck, including but not limited to truck logs, scene investigation, and witness statements, to name a few.
