Dallas Semi-Truck Accident Injures 4 People
On February 14, 2022, a three-vehicle accident involving two large trucks and a passenger vehicle occurred on LBJ Freeway near Houston School Road. The accident happened around 4:30 in the afternoon, and four people were reported as injured at the scene.
A Mack truck traveling in the eastbound lane of LBJ hit the back end of a semi-truck, which was pushed forward and hit a Toyota Camry. A passenger of the Mack, two passengers in the Toyota, and the driver of the semi were all reported as having injuries. The accident is still under investigation.
Dallas Truck Accidents Do Not Require Fatalities To Be Serious
Thankfully no one in the accident listed above lost their life during the accident. Semi-truck accidents often result in the loss of life or catastrophic injuries because of the size and weight of the semi-truck compared to the smaller passenger vehicle.
However, this does not mean that the injuries received were not serious. Any accident has the potential of causing injuries that disrupt your life and cause you financial harm.
Trucking Accidents Can Be Complex Cases
Both federal and state laws regulate the trucking industry. When an accident occurs, both sets of laws must be investigated to see if there were violations. Additionally, the nature of the trucking business means that there is a potential for several entities, not just the driver, to be held responsible for the accident. This is when the case can become very tricky.
If you have received a personal injury in a trucking accident, you will need to contact a Dallas personal injury lawyer that manages trucking accidents about your case. An experienced attorney can give you the guidance you need to process a trucking accident claim.
Compensation Claims For A Personal Injury
Depending on the facts of your case, you may be entitled to one or more forms of compensation for your injuries and financial losses. These different forms of compensation include:

- Loss of wages and benefits for time missed at work
- Future earning capacity if you cannot return to work

- Pain and suffering and mental anguish
Not all forms of compensation may apply. Additional forms of compensation may also be available. Your personal injury lawyer will inform you of all types of compensation that apply to your case.
