Truck Driver Negligence
Were You Seriously Injured By A Negligent Driver?
Remaining attentive while operating a vehicle is one of the most, if not the most important thing a driver can do on the road in order to prevent a tragic accident. Unfortunately, far too many drivers choose to split their attention between the task at hand and other activities, dramatically increasing the risk of causing a serious crash that could result in injuries or even death. Because of the sheer size of their vehicles, truck drivers need to take extra care to keep focused on the road. Unfortunately, far too many drivers and trucking companies push their drivers harder than necessary, attempt to cut corners, etc. in an attempt to keep their costs as low as possible while maximizing profits. If these choices result in a catastrophic crash, those injured deserve the opportunity to file a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover any medical bills or damages.
If you were seriously injured by a negligent truck driver, you may be able to file a lawsuit in order to secure compensation to cover any medical expenses or damages that were caused by the crash, and our Dallas truck accident attorneys at Aldous \ Walker LLP are ready to help you put together a plan of action and prepare your case for trial.

How Negligence Can Lead To An Accident
During our trial preparations, our attorneys will look into the events leading up to your accident. Some of the things we look out for include whether or not the truck driver kept their vehicle well-maintained, whether they were keeping up with their federally regulated rest schedule, and more. Other factors we look for during the discovery process include:
- Reckless driving that fails to take into account weather conditions.
- Reckless driving from improperly changing lanes, failing to follow the rules of the road, tailgating, etc.
- Failure of the driver to properly care for themselves or driving beyond the federally mandated limits.
- Falsified maintenance records, inspection logs, driver’s logs, etc.
- Distracted driving.
- Drug and/or alcohol use
