Dallas truck accident attorney Julie Johnson has handled hundreds of truck accident cases since she began practicing law in 1991. This experience gives her an in-depth understanding of the special circumstances involved in these high-stakes accident claims.
Truck crashes differ from passenger vehicle-only accidents not only because of the size of the vehicles involved, but because of the special state and federal regulations and insurance requirements that apply to large commercial vehicles.
Working with a personal injury lawyer who understands the intricacies of commercial and semi truck accidents can provide the tools necessary to take a stand against large trucking and insurance companies.
