Information About Fort Worth, Texas & Truck Accidents
Fort Worth covers nearly 300 square miles in Tarrant, Parker, Denton, and Wise Counties; it is the county seat for Tarrant County. Located in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, Fort Worth and Dallas are often referred to as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The two cities are the economic and cultural hub of north central Texas.
The Dallas-Fort Worth region boasts major interstates such as I-20, I-30, I-45, and I-35. It is a prominent center for industry, technology, distribution, and transportation where cattle and agriculture exist alongside newer aerospace companies and defense contractors. It also hosts the headquarters for American Airlines, D.R. Horton, BNSF Railway, and XTO Energy.
Due to Fort Worth’s proximity to the Barnett Shale, there are 1,675 shale-gas wells within the city limits. In Texas, individual towns and cities regulate quality of life issues related to urban drilling. The issues Fort Worth are dealing with include noise, dust, and traffic—especially heavy truck traffic. Truck traffic in Fort Worth is growing rapidly, fueled partially by urban drilling. Concerns over road wear, air quality, and truck accidents are addressed before drilling within the town limits.
What Causes Fort Worth Trucking Accidents?
Trucking accidents have various causes, but they can all be traced back to acts of carelessness, negligence, and wrongdoing. A trucking company that hires inexperienced drivers, a loading company that fails to properly secure cargo, and a carrier that encourages drivers to stay behind the wheel without sufficient breaks are all examples of parties that could be responsible for trucking accidents in Fort Worth and nationwide. At Arnold & Itkin, we have the experience and resources to uncover the true cause of a client’s collision and hold at-fault parties accountable.
Our team handles 18-wheeler accident cases involving such causes as:
- Overloaded trucks
- Inexperienced drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Improperly secured cargo
- Defective truck parts
- Poorly maintained vehicles
- Dangerous roadways
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
Recovering Fair Compensation After a Truck Accident
Medical expenses are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident. You may be unable to work and may feel helpless as you watch the bills pile up with no way of paying. You may experience emotional trauma that lasts long after physical injuries have healed, such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The recovery of full and fair compensation can make all the difference for a person who has been injured in a Fort Worth 18-wheeler accident.
We seek the recovery of economic and non-economic damages for our clients, including medical care, lost earnings, ongoing treatment or therapy, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering.
