Truck accidents may be more severe than other types of motor vehicle accidents. Due to a truck’s significant weight and size, catastrophic injuries are more likely and may cause permanent disability. Truck accident claims may also be more complex than other types of accidents as a result of the various parties involved in an accident, such as trucking companies, manufacturers, or negligent drivers.

Truck accident laws and regulations differ from typical motor vehicle accidents in many ways. Working with a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer can help you understand which federal laws and state regulations may pertain to your case.
The following laws may determine liability if negligence was the direct cause of your accident:
Federal Laws Governing Truck Accidents: The Code of Federal Regulations sets the legal standard that companies, carriers, and drivers must meet and may help determine who’s responsible for a trucking accident. The following are basic requirements that truck drivers must follow:
Other agencies also regulate essential driving requirements such as equipment, truck weight, maintenance, and emissions. If a truck driver or company has violated any set federal truck regulations, they may be held liable for losses incurred in a Dallas truck accident.
Negligent Maintenance or Company Negligence: If a trucking company or driver neglects to routinely maintain the commercial truck and a malfunction or defect causes a severe accident, then they may be held liable for negligence by endangering drivers on the road.
Modified Comparative Negligence in Dallas: Texas abides by a modified comparative negligence system when determining the monetary award for damages in a truck accident. If you are found to be some degree responsible for the truck accident that led to your injuries, your award will be determined by the percentage of fault you are responsible for. For “modified” comparative negligence states, your recovery is limited if your fault exceeds a certain degree, which is 50%.
