Victims Identified As 59-Year-Old Paul Buckley Sachs Of Ft. Worth & 63-Year-Old Ann Marie Cole Of Denton

The fatal accident involving two 18-wheeler trucks and at least four other passenger vehicles took place the afternoon of Friday, November 8th in the northbound lanes of I-35W.

While exact details regarding the circumstances of the crash have yet to be released, authorities have reported that speed was a factor in the crash. The identities of two deceased victims have been released, though it is believed that another person who is yet to be named was also killed in this tragic incident. At least three other drivers involved were hospitalized, though their injuries were non-life-threatening.

The numerous propane tanks carried by the truck caught on fire and were strewn across the highway after the crash, leading to a massive fire that consumed not only the cabin of the truck but also one of the other passenger vehicles involved in the crash. Traffic in both directions remained closed for hours while the scene was cleaned up.

An experienced truck crash lawyer, Marc Lenahan has spent years defending the rights of victims involved in truck accidents. He offered the following insight for those who may find themselves involved in similar incidents:

"Most individuals understand that every time we jump into our cars and head out on the road, we are putting our lives at risk. It's also true that everyone considers themselves a safe driver, or at least safe enough to be able to avoid a crash.

But the truth is that truck accidents are called so because they usually can't be avoided. And if a truck accident results in a grave injury or even death, it's absolutely normal for those who suffered because of someone else's negligence to seek justice.

Fortunately the law permits victims to do just this via a truck accident lawsuit. By filing this type of lawsuit, victims of another driver's negligence can seek a compensation that covers all medical costs resulting from the incident as well as other damages that can include lost income, diminished quality of life and more.

It's important for those considering this option to be thorough when choosing a legal representative. The lawyer who is representing a victim and their loved ones in a court of law should have experience with the same types of cases and should also be able to provide references from past clients.

A lawsuit is not the first thought for most victims, and yet it can be the only way to recover a full compensation that can give a suffering family the hope of ever getting back on their feet. For this reason, those involved in an accident should discuss their incident with an experienced truck crash lawyer who will fight aggressively until justice is achieved."
