Denton County Truck Accident Lawyers for Injuries Caused by Driver Fatigue or Improper Maintenance

Crashes involving commercial trucks can be devastating. The size and momentum of these enormous vehicles can cause an incredible amount of damage that cannot be undone. The vast majority of these accidents are completely preventable. When truck drivers and the companies that employ them take their duties related to safety seriously, the odds of a serious accident drop considerably. Sadly, when these companies and drivers fail to exercise the proper level of care to prevent accidents, the results can be horrific.

Marsala Law Group is dedicated to recovering compensation for those who were injured or who lost family members due to negligence in the trucking industry. While no amount of money can truly make up for the loss of life or serious injuries suffered, you deserve every penny the law allows you to recover. Our attorneys are skilled at investigating these crashes in order to prove the cause in court and get you any and all compensation you may be entitled to.

Denton County Lawyers Proving Negligence After a Truck Accident

After a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, it is important that we are able to prove exactly where the truck driver or trucking company failed in their duty to follow safe practices. The scene left behind after these major crashes is often chaotic, but we are skilled investigators. Careless trucking practices we have seen include:

  • Hours of service violations - Strict laws exist limiting how long a driver can stay on the road without taking a break to sleep. Ignoring these crucial regulations can lead to driver fatigue, which may cause truck drivers to make fatal errors in judgment.
  • Maintenance - Companies who put these big rigs on the road must maintain them carefully. Anything from brake failures to tire blowouts can cause massive accidents.
  • Distraction - Drivers of commercial trucks should be focused on nothing but the road. Everyone is in extreme danger when a truck driver pays attention to anything but driving.
  • Intoxication - Too many truck wrecks are caused by drunk or drugged driving. This practice is both illegal and wildly unsafe.

Damages Our Cooke County Attorneys Fight for After a Truck Crash

Marsala Law Group will do everything in our power to make sure that you receive every bit of compensation possible after you have suffered at the hands of a negligent truck driver or agency. Many of these damages are similar to what you could receive after other car accidents. Types of compensation we will strive to secure for you include:

  • All present and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and psychological care
  • Loss of enjoyment of life from physical impairment or disfigurement

In some cases, if the negligence that led to your crash was extreme, rising above and beyond ordinary carelessness, we may ask for exemplary damages. Also called "punitive damages," this type of damage award is designed to punish those responsible for extremely unsafe trucking practices.

We leave nothing on the table when it comes to fighting for those whose lives have changed because of negligent trucking. This traumatic and often life-altering event never should have happened to you. Our lawyers are committed to holding dangerous truck drivers and companies accountable for the suffering they have inflicted on you.
