DALLAS 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer

Dallas18-wheeler accident attorney Augustus has represented people injured by a negligent driver of an 18-wheeler tractor trailer.  He works to get his clients the most compensation possible for their damages.

 

Why Are 18-Wheeler Accidents So Deadly

It is a matter of simple physics—the more a vehicle weighs and the faster it is accelerating, the greater the force it produces (force = mass x acceleration) and the damages it causes. An average 18-wheeler weighs approximately 35,000 lbs. Fully loaded it can legally haul loads up to 80,000 lbs., i.e., 40 tons.  Also, the overall average length of a large 18-wheeler is 70-80 ft. and the time to stop an 18-wheeler is 40% greater than that of a car.

For at least these reasons, an 18-wheeler accident can be some of the deadliest accidents on the road.  An 18-wheeler accident can leave multiple people dead.  You need to retain an experienced Dallas truck accident attorney if you’re involved in an 18-wheeler accident.
