Grand Prairie Commercial Truck Wreck Lawyer Helping Victims Seek Compensation for Serious Injuries

Commercial trucks can be incredibly dangerous when not handled with care. Both truck drivers and trucking companies have an enormous amount of responsibility to operate these vehicles safely. When someone fails to take that duty seriously, the consequences can be dire. Crashes involving a big rig can cause extraordinary and sometimes life-altering damage. Nothing can prepare you for the impact a truck accident can have on your life.

The Law Office of Dennis R. Croman, Inc. is skilled at helping individuals and families recover financial compensation after suffering harm at the hands of a careless truck driver or trucking company. If you have been hurt in a truck accident, it is critical that you reach out to a skilled attorney before speaking to an insurance company. Our experienced attorney knows what these claims are worth, and we will fight to protect you from settling for anything less than what you deserve.

The Damages Our Lawyer Can Demand for You After a Tarrant County Truck Accident

After this serious type of motor vehicle accident, you may be primarily concerned with paying your medical bills and how you will make up for any lost wages. The damages our attorney will fight to get for you certainly include those costs, but the compensation you can recover is not limited to just your direct financial losses. Attorney Croman will demand compensation for your:

  • Medical costs, including any ongoing or long-term care
  • Lost wages, including compensation to make up for any loss in earning capacity as a result of your injuries
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional anguish and mental trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life due to lasting physical impairment, disfigurement, or psychological impact

In some cases where the truck driver or company acted with a complete, reckless disregard for your safety, our lawyer may also demand punitive damages. These damages are effectively fines designed to punish this kind of gross negligence, and if they are awarded, they will be paid to you by the defendant.

When a truck accident causes a wrongful death, the damages that certain surviving immediate family members could be entitled to are different. They are designed to compensate you for the totality of the losses - financial and emotional - your family has suffered.

How Our Attorney Can Prove Negligence After a Truck Accident

The sooner you call us, the better we can help you. We start investigating the second you choose us to represent you. It is ideal if we are able to begin our investigation while the accident scene is largely undisturbed. If that proves impossible, our team has other ways to get the proof we need. The most common causes of truck accidents we encounter include:

  • Driver fatigue - There are strict hours of service regulations for a reason. Sleepy drivers are dangerous. Our investigations often reveal hours of service violations, meaning the driver did not stop to rest when they were legally obligated to.
  • Distraction - Commercial truck drivers should focus solely on their driving - not their cell phones, music, or other distractions.
  • Careless maintenance - Truck companies have an incredibly important duty to maintain their fleet in a safe manner. Negligent companies sometimes let necessary repairs slide. This can cause accidents due to brake failure, tire blowouts, or trailer detachments.
  • DWI - When commercial truck drivers drive while intoxicated, everyone on the road is in grave danger.

Our lawyer is skilled at getting to the root cause of negligent trucking accidents. We will take all possible steps to gather evidence demonstrating negligence, and we will fight to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
