Texas is the deadliest state in the country for trucking accidents. Dallas County is the second-deadliest county in Texas for truck crashes. A large amount of freight moves through the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Most of that freight is moved by large commercial trucks.
As Dallas grows and more cars and trucks share the city’s already stressed road infrastructure, the risk for commercial trucking accidents increases. This is bad news for passenger vehicle occupants. Large trucks weight 20 -30 times more than a car and when the two collide, the smaller vehicle almost always gets the worst of the collision.
Truck accidents are different from car accidents not only because of how dangerous they are, but because of how commercial trucks are regulated and the way trucking lawsuits are governed. Adding to the complications is a new Texas law that shields trucking companies from liability.
