Trucking companies must follow strict guidelines when operating 18-wheelers on highways in North Texas and throughout the state of Texas. When truckers don’t follow these rules or they negligently operate vehicles, they often cause devastating accidents. Unfortunately, when a car gets into an accident with a large truck, semi or 18-wheeler, it’s usually the car and its driver that ends up worse for wear. All too often, automobile drivers are killed in truck/18-wheeler accidents. The sheer size and weight of these massive vehicles is enough to crush a sedan or even an SUV at high speeds.

Drivers who use North Texas highways on a daily basis know these dangers all too well. In North Texas, I-35, I-20 and I-30 are just some of the busy highways that connect the major metropolitan area between Dallas and Fort Worth and all major suburbs to the north and south. I-35E alone averages nearly 270,000 vehicles per day in this part of Texas, making it one of the top 15 busiest stretches of highway in the United States. This inevitably also makes it one of the nation’s most dangerous areas for truck/18-wheeler accidents.

Get a Second Opinion on a Quick Settlement

Insurance companies for trucking operations are usually quick to settle cases involving semis and automobiles. However, it’s important to keep in mind that these companies are not looking out for your best interests. They are simply trying to pay you off quickly to avoid legal action that could cost them much more than they’re offering you.
