Fort Worth commercial truck and car accident attorneys fighting for you

Drivers of commercial trucks cause catastrophic or deadly accidents for many reasons, including driver fatigue, distraction, intoxication, lack of training, and traffic violations. Commercial trucks are especially dangerous, because they are harder to control than cars and cause more forceful impacts when crashes happen. Tragically, in 2018, Texas led the United States in deadly commercial truck accidents. According to the Texas DOT, more than 205,000 people were injured in motor vehicle traffic accidents in 2020. Every day of 2020, at least one person died on Texas roads.

At Slack Davis Sanger, our Fort Worth truck accident litigation attorneys are skilled at trying these complex cases. Commercial truck crashes often involve multiple defendants (driver, truck owners shipping brokers, manufacturers) and multiple victims (due to the many vehicles near the truck at the time of the crash). Drivers of 18-wheelers, rigs, and other heavy trucks must comply with federal and state trucking regulations. We understand these regulations completely.

Catastrophic car crash injuries require experienced personal injury lawyers who work with investigators, engineers, and traffic reconstruction experts. Our Fort Worth car accident lawyers work quickly to investigate the accident site and the damaged vehicles. We work with your doctors to fully understand just how serious your injuries are.

Our attorneys represent families of deceased victims, passengers, drivers, pedestrians, and anyone injured in a car accident in both truck accidents and car accidents in and near Fort Worth.

Fort Worth worksite accident attorneys with experience

There are many types of deadly and dangerous occupations. Oil and gas extraction and construction are two of the roughest types of jobs. Extraction workers have the constant risk of explosions and fires, and construction workers may suffer harm from falls, being pinned by an object, and being struck by an object, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

Oil and gas extraction employees and construction workers are often killed in vehicle accidents, as trucks bring items to and from the site, or from work vehicles used on site. Workers in both these professions are routinely injured by defective machines and tools, or by workers who do not properly uses these machines and tools.

If you are injured on the job, you may be unsure of the specific legal action you should take. At Slack Davis Sanger, our Fort Worth worksite accident lawyers file negligence claims against employers and product liability claims against the makers of defective products. We work to prove that employers failed to follow industry safety standards and failed to following building code and OSHA regulations.

Our lawyers fight to hold employers and any other responsible parties (such as maintenance companies) accountable for changing your life and for preventing you from working. We also fight to help the families of any worker killed on the job obtain all the benefits they deserve. Our Fort Worth worksite attorneys represent clients injured in oil and gas accidents, construction accidents, and other catastrophic accidents.

Help for victims of boating and watercraft accidents in Fort Worth

When a negligent driver, property owner, manufacturer, or other party causes you harm, or if you were injured while boating, jet-skiing, or on any type of watercraft, Slack Davis Sanger is ready to help.

Holding manufacturers of defective vehicles liable for the fatalities or injuries they cause

Manufacturers of tires, brakes, fuel lines, steering columns, airbags, and all the parts in your car have a duty to put your safety before company profits. Manufacturers can be held strictly liable (meaning there is no need to prove negligence) if a vehicle defect caused an injury or the vehicle failed to properly protect you during an accident. Vehicle defects include faulty design, poor workmanship, and improper instructions.

Defective products can cause fires, explosions, lack of control of your car, and other dangerous conditions. At Slack Davis Sanger, our Fort Worth defective vehicle accident lawyers work with engineers and product safety professionals to show the vehicle part was defective. We work the NHTSA to show the vehicle or part involved in your accident was subject to a recall.  When car accidents occur due to defective vehicle parts, our Fort Worth attorneys can file auto defect claims, wrongful death claims, negligence claims, product liability claims, or class action claims.


Advocating for Fort Worth victims of medical malpractice

Medical providers are required to provide competent medical care to all their patients. Medical malpractice includes misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, pharmaceutical errors, surgical mistakes, prescription mistakes, birth injuries, and many other types of negligence.

Survivors of medical malpractice often need corrective surgeries. In tragic cases, an untimely or incorrect diagnosis can lead to death. We represent clients in Texas as well as those filing claims against the federal government for acts of medical negligence.

In Texas, you can demand damages for all your economic losses, including the cost of all your medical care and the income you lose because you cannot work. You can also claim pain and suffering damages and loss of enjoyment of life, though these damages are capped according to Texas law. At Slack Davis Sanger, our Fort Worth medical malpractice lawyers work with medical specialists who can testify to the extent to which your doctor or health provider acted incompetently. Talk to a skilled medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights.

Our lawyers use our aviation, engineering, and scientific skills to understand why accidents happen and who is responsible. Our scientific and technical backgrounds mean we can explain complicated concepts in ways judges and juries can understand. We invite Fort Worth residents and families to learn about who we are and what we do.


What Clients Say

"My experience with Mike Slack was exceptional. Surviving a plane crash is extremely traumatic both physically and emotionally, and adding the task of navigating through legal issues was overwhelming. I interviewed several attorneys and knew after our first visit that he was different - he cared about me and about my family. He and his staff were patient and very kind as they spent time getting to know us all. I felt like he truly wanted to help and that is what he did."
