El Paso Truck Accident Attorneys
We’ve Secured Billions of Dollars for Our Clients
Commercial trucks can weigh between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds—making them significantly bigger than even the largest passenger vehicles you can find on the highways throughout Texas. That’s why crashes involving tractor-trailers and other large trucks are more deadly, often causing catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
After these serious crashes, the El Paso truck accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP are here to help victims rebuild their lives. Every case we take becomes personal to us, and we have a history of securing record-breaking victories for our clients. This allows them to cover the costs of medical care, put food on the table, and replace their income while they heal. We have handled all kinds of truck accident cases and have represented carrier employees, independent contractors, and passenger vehicle drivers.

Truck Accident FAQs
What Causes Truck Accidents?
Trucking companies are structured in a way that makes accidents almost inevitable. Truck drivers are paid only for the miles they drive, which means there are tasks that they perform off the clock. These tasks are often vital for the safety of the drivers themselves as well as others on the road. But since they don’t get paid to perform them, drivers will often cut corners and leave these tasks undone.
Non-driving work that every driver needs to do includes:
- Rig inspections at weigh-ins
- Getting a full night of rest before driving
- Rig repair & maintenance
- Waiting for loading & unloading
- Route planning
If drivers do perform these tasks, they often drive long hours to help make up for their unpaid time. Studies have shown that these long drives lead to more truck accidents. Too many drivers have had to pay the price for these unsafe practices, and Arnold & Itkin LLP is committed to holding trucking companies and drivers accountable for the harm they cause.

UPS Truck Accident Lawyers in El Paso
Between December 2015 and December 2017, UPS drivers were involved in over 2,000 accidents that lead to the death of 49 people. In recent years, delivery drivers have emerged as a new threat to the public. Because these drivers are often rushing to make the large number of deliveries that they are responsible for on their route, they make careless decisions. The large size of UPS trucks means that they can do serious damage to passenger vehicles or pedestrians in an accident.
El Paso FedEx Truck Accident Attorneys
Another major player in the freight delivery industry is FedEx. Their fleet of nearly 100,000 delivery vehicles does serious damage. Not only are these trucks involved in accidents quite often, but FedEx also had over 50 lobbyists on its payroll in 2015. These lobbyists fight to keep federal regulations on delivery vehicles to a minimum. That may be good for business, but it is not good for the victims of freight delivery truck accidents.
