Dallas Truck Accident Attorneys
Semi-Truck & 18-Wheeler Accidents in Texas
In Texas, thousands of people are injured or killed each year in motor vehicle accidents. Many of these collisions involve large, commercial trucks, such as semis, 18-wheelers, and tankers. When this is the case, accident victims are disproportionately at risk of suffering catastrophic and/or fatal injuries.

Can You Sue the Trucking Company After an Accident?
Under Texas’s traditional fault-based system, motor vehicle accident victims must prove that someone else was at fault for the collision that caused their injuries to file claims and recover compensation. This is true of standard car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and large truck accidents.
However, proving liability after a truck accident is not the same as proving liability after most typical auto accidents. In most typical cases, the person or party that caused the accident is also the one liable for the victim’s damages. After a truck accident, a third party—such as the trucking company—is often legally responsible for victims’ damages, even when the truck driver or another party was directly responsible for the accident.
In fact, after a large truck accident, you may be entitled to bring a claim against any of the following liable parties:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company or truck driver’s employer
- A person or party responsible for truck maintenance or repairs
- A manufacturer or distributor of a defective truck or truck part
- The person or entity responsible for loading the truck’s cargo/freight
- A construction company or engineer that built or designed a defective roadway
- A municipal entity responsible for roadway maintenance
- Another motorist or third party that negligently caused the crash
At Mike Slocumb Law Firm, our Dallas truck accident attorneys work with teams of accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, economists, and other experts who help us investigate these accidents and identify who is liable for our clients’ damages.
Often, our clients have claims against trucking companies and/or their insurance providers. Our attorneys are aggressive when it comes to pursuing these claims, and we are not afraid to take on large, powerful entities in our pursuit of the full, fair compensation our clients are owed.

Truck Accident Injuries & Damages
Semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, big rigs, and other large commercial vehicles weigh tens of thousands of pounds. When they collide with other, smaller vehicles, they nearly always cause massive damage and severe, life-changing injuries.
Some of the most common types of injuries associated with large truck accidents include:
- Broken bones/fractures
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Accidental amputation/loss of limb
- Internal bleeding
- Serious lacerations
- Back and neck injuries
- Soft tissue and organ damage
These injuries can lead to permanent disability, severe impairment, and even death. Victims and the surviving loved ones of those who tragically pass away due to their injuries are often left with enormous physical, emotional, and financial hardships, from mounting medical bills to months or years of lost wages to immense pain and suffering.
By filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim, you can seek financial compensation for certain losses, or “damages,” such as:
- Medical expenses, including future projected medical care costs
- Prescription medications, medical equipment, and medical devices
- Lost income, wages, and employment-related benefits
- Loss of earning ability and future income/benefits
- Physical and mental pain and suffering, including future pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and anguish associated with the loss of a loved one
- Loss of love, companionship, guidance, counsel, and support
