DALLAS, Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A fatal collision between a dump truck driver and two other vehicles on a major Dallas freeway made headlines last month after a news report on the accident revealed investigators found the driver of the dump truck to have been at fault. The 19-year-old driver made claims that he was traveling at about 60 miles per hour and lost control of his vehicle when another driver pulled in front of him. According to a WFAA news report, the investigators' findings were different.
Report blames truck driver for fatal LBJ crash
"The driver told police he was going about 60 miles per hour when a car pulled in front of him and he lost control.
But investigators have a slightly different version of what they believe happened, saying the driver failed to control his speed in the narrow lanes of the LBJ Express construction zone. When traffic slowed, he took faulty evasive action, improperly braking, and steering to the left."

Say 1800 CAR WRECK attorneys, truck accidents such are serious in nature. The size of big rigs in comparison with passenger vehicles adds to the high risk of those in smaller vehicles being seriously injured in these types of collisions. In many truck accidents, injuries sustained by those in passenger vehicles prove fatal.
There are physical, emotional, and financial challenges that often impact survivors of serious truck accidents. Trying to focus on healing from the physical pain and suffering for many seems impossible when mounting debt from medical expenses and financial losses from being unable to resume former work activities are factors. It often takes pursuing a legal claim for compensation to help those in these circumstances lift the financial burden and restore a sense of normalcy to their lives.
