The unintended result of the economic growth in Dallas-Fort Worth is that accidents between commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles are on the rise, and very often with tragic results. Commercial truck drivers and cement truck drivers are under pressure to get to the next job site or deliver the next load. The truth is that when tragedy strikes, the family of the injured or killed victims of these accidents need to know their rights against the truck driver and the trucking company or contractor.
Wrongful death actions are a type of negligence action and victims of wrongful death can receive compensation for their loss and the damages that resulted from that loss, including economic and non-economic damages.
