What Damages Can I Get for an I-20 Accident in Dallas?

Since Interstate 20 is one of the largest travel routes in all of Texas, it’s a major shipping corridor with significant traffic from commercial trucks.

These large, fast-traveling trucks can pose a major threat to drivers of passenger vehicles. In fact, according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), out of more than 35,000 crashes in Dallas in 2021, more than 200 hundred were fatal. Local reports from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram estimate that close to half of these fatalities resulted from commercial trucking accidents.

With such large vehicles, the likelihood of a serious crash and severe injuries increases. 

Compensatory Damages

These damages compensate you and your family member for injuries and financial losses. They’ll cover the harm you’ve endured and the recovery you need. Compensatory damages can include:

  • Pain and suffering due to your injuries
  • Long-term or permanent impairment such as from a spinal injury or head trauma
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • The cost of emergency care, hospital care, at-home care, assistive devices, accommodative home renovations, medicine, physiotherapy, and/or occupational therapy
  • The cost to repair or replace your vehicle
  • Lost income and employment benefits, and/or loss of earning ability
  • Loss of enjoyment in activities you used to love
  • Emotional suffering
  • Mental suffering

It’s impossible to sum up the toll of a serious accident on a person’s physical, emotional, and financial health with a bullet list. Our firm can talk with you to understand the full scope of your losses. We will use your testimony and documentation of your losses to create an estimate, allowing us to pursue what you deserve from the at-fault party.

Wrongful Death Damages

If you lost a family member in the accident, we hope to convey how sorry we are for your loss. We know how hard it is for surviving family members to move forward, especially while they’re suffering the financial aftereffects of their loved one’s accident and passing.

Our wrongful death attorneys can handle your case from beginning to end. We can tally up your emotional and financial damages and pursue them from the person or entity responsible.

Wrongful death damages can include:

  • Lost income and benefits for your family
  • Emotional trauma
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost spousal and parental love

We hope you’ll allow us to pursue justice for your loved one and your family on your behalf.

Why Should I Hire an I-20 Accident Lawyer in Dallas?

After a collision or the loss of a loved one, you will have a lot on your plate. Navigating life after the accident can take a toll on your mental, emotional, and physical health. It makes sense that you may not want to take on the added burden of a legal case. Thankfully, our firm can handle every aspect of your case, so you can focus on your priorities.

Once we take you on as our client, among other services, we provide:

  • Evaluation of your damages: You may be unaware of damages you are eligible to claim. Your lawyer will help you identify these, attribute financial values to them, and create an estimate for our demands. Having this figure in mind can help us avoid unfair offers from the insurance company.
  • An investigation into the other party’s liability: During our investigation, your lawyer will seek out evidence, such as dash cam footage or eyewitness testimony. Then, we will use this evidence to demonstrate that the responsible party’s behavior meets the elements of negligence. Once we establish that the other driver or another party was negligent, we can hold them legally liable for your damages.
  • Negotiations: Finally, your lawyer will negotiate with the responsible party’s insurer. In negotiations, your lawyer will push for a fair settlement deal, and if the insurer doesn’t offer one, your lawyer can threaten to sue.
  • Preparation for trial: If circumstances necessitate a lawsuit, your lawyer can sue the at-fault party, using the evidence we gather to convince a judge or jury instead.

Types of Commercial Trucking Accidents that Occur on I-20

The kind of accident you experience may give us information about how the collision occurred. The cause of your accident may then lead us to the liable party. We will use this information to support your claims and demand what you deserve in compensation. 

Here are some common kinds of commercial trucking accidents:

  • Jackknife accidents: The cab and trailer may fold together at an angle resulting in total loss of control of the vehicle.
  • Cargo accidents: Sometimes the orientation or displaced weight of the cargo can cause the driver to lose control of the truck. In rare cases, cargo may spill out of the trailer and cause a collision.
  • Underride accidents: A passenger vehicle may slide underneath the trailer of a semi-truck if the truck driver stops short or fails to check their blind spots. This can lead to catastrophic or fatal injuries.
  • Blowout accidents: Blowouts are fairly common on commercial vehicles, but having a blowout near a passenger car can result in another driver colliding with debris. In some cases, the truck driver may lose control when they experience a tire blowout.
  • Blind spot accidents: Commercial trucks have long blindspots. These may cause them to crash into another driver while making a turn. 

There are many other kinds of motor vehicle accidents that can happen on I-20. All can be catastrophic or deadly. Regardless of the type of accident you were in, we want to help you.
