Amarillo Truck Accident Attorneys
Billions Won by Trucking Lawyers Serving Amarillo
More than 5,000 people will die in trucking accidents this year. As many as 700+ of them will be truck drivers themselves. Despite making up less than 5 percent of the vehicles on the road, large commercial vehicles are responsible for 1 in 10 vehicle fatalities. Weighing between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds, big rigs and tractor-trailers weigh up to 20 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle. The accidents they cause are life-altering, and in many cases are life-ending.
Truck accidents often cause catastrophic injuries like:
- Burn injury
- Orthopedic injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Neurological injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Blunt force trauma
Recovering from a trucking accident or recovering from the wrongful death of a loved one is costly—medical costs, the loss of regular income, and the compounding costs of providing for a family can leave people in a financial hole that's impossible to escape. Meanwhile, the company that caused the accident doesn't have to pay a dime. Arnold & Itkin wants to change that.

- Box truck crashes
- Flatbed truck accidents

Amarillo UPS & FedEx Accident Lawyers
When it comes to the general transportation industry, lists of the top players almost always include UPS and FedEx. The two companies together command a 50% market share of their industry, employ hundreds of thousands of vehicles, and influence the industry in the way that only large businesses can. FedEx alone has 51 lobbyists in Washington, 37 of whom were once federal government employees.
Find out how often trucking companies get into accidents on the FMCSA website.
However, their influence does not translate to a safe workforce. UPS was involved in more than 2,000 crashes from 2015 to 2017, injuring 689 and causing 49 deaths. FedEx has seen a 273 percent increase in the number of fatalities its crashes cause and a 254 percent increase in the overall number of crashes. Assuming that none of the UPS truck accidents involved the same vehicle twice, their crash rate means 1 in every 100 UPS vehicles crashed in that two-year period.
If you were injured by FedEx or UPS, call our Amarillo FedEx & UPS truck accident lawyers for a free consultation. We have experience taking on global companies to hold them accountable to the people they hurt.

After an accident, trucking companies immediately send out a team of investigators and adjusters to make sure they're not found responsible. They'll pin the blame on their drivers, the other motorist, the road, or anyone else but them. However, many trucking accidents are caused (partially or wholly) by policies the trucking companies use to maximize profits. They deserve to pay for their mistakes.
Our trucking law firm believes that survivors of truck accidents deserve the same resources as large companies—their own investigator, their own advocate, their own fighters in their corner. In short, we fight to level the playing field. Our approach has helped our clients win billions of dollars to financially secure their future and help them move forward. Get a free consultation—we'll tell you your best options, and if we can help, our Amarillo trucking attorneys will cover the costs of your case from end to end. No out of pocket expenses, no bills. You only pay if you win.
