Truck Accidents Your Injury, Our Fight

Dallas Truck Accident Lawyer

The trucking industry is a major job creator, employing one out of every 16 people in Texas. As one of the top-ranked states for exports, large commercial trucks are a staple feature on our roadways in Dallas. Unfortunately, driver negligence, unrealistic delivery schedules, and lackluster enforcement of regulations make it incredibly dangerous for passenger vehicles to share the road with large trucks.

At Buckingham & Vega Law Firm, we have witnessed the devastation that a truck accident can wreak on the lives of victims and their families. Even when faced with evidence of their misbehavior, trucking companies and their drivers will do everything within their power to deny liability for a collision. As experienced personal injury attorneys, it’s our job to make sure that doesn’t happen.

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident and the insurance company is denying you the full and fair compensation you are owed, contact our law office right away. We’ll match you with a Dallas truck accident lawyer for a free consultation. We provide this initial meeting as a courtesy to injury victims, and there is never any obligation to work with our law office following your case evaluation.
