In most 18-wheeler accidents, the trucking company and the driver are at fault. Texas, Tarrant County or the city of Dallas or Fort Worth may also be responsible for poor road conditions. An auto part manufacturer, a construction company or another driver may also be named as defendants.
Fort Worth trucking accident lawyer Bill Berenson at Berenson Injury Law has handled car and truck accident recovery cases exclusively for 40 years. This level of focus has allowed our firm to refine our investigation and trial preparation process to hold the negligent parties liable for damages. We have the resources and the knowledge to go toe-to-toe with large transportation corporations whose actions put your safety on the line.

Amidst the confusion, the trucking corporation usually sends its own team to mitigate damages and deflect responsibility. Trucking companies commonly push the blame onto their drivers or onto the injured occupants of the passenger vehicles.
Serving people in Fort Worth and beyond, trucking accident lawyer Bill Berenson has regularly encountered this scenario during his nearly four-decades career. He takes decisive, effective steps to prove corporate liability and recover damages.
We perform our own thorough investigation of the crash site, including road conditions, debris scatter, skid marks and positions of the vehicles. We interview witnesses while their memories are still fresh. We inspect the tractor-trailer for clues, typically petitioning the court for an emergency injunction to prevent the corporation from dismantling or “repairing” the truck and consequently destroying crucial evidence. We analyze black box data to reconstruct the driver’s behavior and the truck’s condition in the moments before impact. We also consult with some of the most knowledgeable experts in the trucking industry who create a comprehensive report and can testify on your behalf. Our exhaustive preparations help us get to the bottom of what happened and who is liable.
Whereas the driver may be liable for his actions, the trucking company typically carries some or all of the blame. For this reason, our trucking accident attorney helps Fort Worth residents and other victims pursue the big transportation entities involved in the crash. We hold the company liable for:
