Common Causes of Truck Wrecks in Texas

No Excuse

In an effort to meet tight deadlines, truck drivers and the companies they work for have been known to cut corners. In the trucking industry even the most mundane, seemingly unimportant rule or guideline is put in place for a reason. At no point is it acceptable to cut corners as doing so will often put other people's safety and lives in jeopardy.

With more than 25 years of experience in the field, The Law Offices of W.T. Johnson understands the ins and outs of the trucking business and have worked on numerous truck accident cases in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Our clients are our top priority. We will work tirelessly to find the cause of your accident, and we’re not afraid to go after the party responsible. Contact us today for more information.

Who Is At Fault?

It is often more difficult to decipher the cause of a trucking accident than it would be in a car accident claim. Numerous factors can come into play, tracing back to the driver, trucking company or even the owner of the cargo. We understand the responsibilities that each group has and work hard to expose the weak link in the chain. We make sure to evaluate every piece of information at every level in our effort to uncover any negligent acts, including:

Trucking Company:

  • Improper or inadequate training
  • Faulty maintenance
  • Safety guidelines
  • Inappropriately tight deadlines


  • Fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Carless or reckless driving
  • Drunk driving

Shipping/cargo company:

  • Overloading
  • Unbalanced loads
