Interstate 20 is a major highway that runs east to west across most of Texas, carrying drivers through the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.  I-20 is a vital traffic artery for commuters, commercial drivers, and others, but due to the huge volume of traffic it carries, auto accidents are a common occurrence.

Were You Hurt in a Car Crash on Interstate 20 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area?

Sadly, serious auto accidents occur on I-20 with some regularity.  In September 2016, one person was killed and another victim was injured in a Texas I-20 accident that occurred just east of Ranger.  Around the same time, two teenagers lost their lives in a multi-vehicle crash that took place on I-20 near Sweetwater.  The same month, a third accident on I-20 in Merkel seriously injured one female victim, who had to be transported to the hospital via helicopter.

Unfortunately, these are but a few of the numerous accidents that have taken place on I-20 in 2016.  Crashes can occur anywhere along this dangerous highway, but the risk is particularly high during rush hour, when the road is especially crowded, and in areas where I-20 has major junctions with other highways, such as:

  • I-10 (Scroggins Draw)
  • I-30 (Fort Worth)
  • I-35E (Dallas)
  • I-35W (Fort Worth)
  • I-45 (Hutchins)
  • US 59, I-369 (Marshall)

If you were injured in a car crash on Interstate 20, or if one of your family members was killed in a fatal accident, compensation may be available for an array of expenses and losses, such as:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Earnings/Income/Wages
  • Lost Benefits
  • Scarring and Disfigurement
  • Pain and Suffering

We know that no amount of compensation can reverse a disabling injury, or restore the life of a lost loved one, but you have a right to seek justice and accountability for the emotional, physical, and financial hardships you are going through.  Our attorneys are here to help you exercise your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.  If another person was at fault for you or your loved one’s accident, he or she may be liable for your expenses, including expenses related to personal injury, wrongful death, and/or property damage.

We will work to determine fault, assess the damages, and maximize the value of your claim, which must be reviewed in detail by an attorney who is deeply familiar with Texas laws regarding traffic regulations, insurance policies, and accident liability.  We encourage you to contact our law offices as soon as possible to discuss your claim and go over the legal options that may be open to you.
