Being involved in an 18-wheeler accident is frightening for anyone. When a vehicle of that size has jackknifed in an accident, the fear of resulting serious injury and property damage is elevated significantly. Earlier this year, two serious 18-wheeler jackknife accidents in Fort Worth made news headlines due to the shocking nature of each accident scene.

According to the Fort Worth based truck accident lawyers of 1-800-CAR-WRECK, it is important that individuals who have been involved in these types of serious commercial truck accidents have legal help on their side so they may be compensated for any resulting damages. Many 18-wheeler accident victims are unaware of the consequences for them in not assessing their legal options early on and waiting to contact an attorney about their potential case. Eberstein & Witherite 18-wheeler accident lawyers note that with each of these cases, a proper investigation should be carried out immediately and key evidence must be preserved. However, a number of injured victims in these circumstances unfortunately are not aware that they are permitted to enact their own investigation without having to rely on the findings of the investigation facilitated by the trucking company involved.

1-800-CAR-WRECK attorneys say it is important that truck accident victims understand their legal rights and options, and by speaking to an attorney, they can get the information they need to make an informed decision on what steps to take next. Individuals who have been involved in a truck accident in Fort Worth can contact the Eberstein & Witherite law firm by calling 1-800-CAR-WRECK, and arrange for a free consultation to discuss their case today.
