For anyone who is injured in a vehicle accident, it's a good idea to speak with an attorney. But for folks involved in a collision with a commercial 18-wheeler – or for the family of someone killed in such an accident – choosing the right truck accident attorney is a matter of grave importance.
Commercial 18-wheeler wrecks frequently involve life-changing injuries, complex liability scenarios, and massive defense resources. Victims of truck accidents ought not to trust their case to just any injury lawyer. Instead, they need a qualified truck accident lawyer with a long track record of success in these cases.

1. Attorney Michael Grossman - Grossman Law Offices
One of the most awkward things for anyone to do is to talk about themselves, which is why I spend the rest of this post talking about other skilled truck accident lawyers.
Even still, I believe that the track record of my law firm places us firmly in the discussion of the best truck accident lawyers in Dallas and, indeed, across the state of Texas. Over our 30-year history, we have handled hundreds of serious injury and wrongful death claims involving commercial trucks and have recovered hundreds of millions for our clients.
If you don't go with one of the other qualified Dallas truck accident lawyers on this list, I hope you’ll reach out to us to discuss your case. We'll be happy to meet with you to listen to the facts of your case, provide our assessment, and discuss your best strategy for achieving justice.
2. Attorney Clay Miller - Miller Weisbrod Olesky, LLP
Attorney Clay Miller of the law firm Miller Weisbrod Olesky is a well-respected trial lawyer here in Dallas and a good buddy of mine. I've known Clay for many years and know he is a very skilled truck accident lawyer who has represented hundreds of families in commercial vehicle accident cases.
A real testament to Clay's abilities can be found in the following anecdote. Clay once sued a major trucking company and basically beat the pants off of them in court in a fatal truck accident case. Even though they lost to him, they were so impressed by his work that they hired him to represent the trucking company when the trucking company later sued the manufacturer of their semi-trucks in a business breach of contract dispute.
Getting hired by your "enemy" after you trounce them in court is perhaps the greatest indication of their respect for your ability.
3. The Tate Law Offices PC
We had the pleasure of working alongside the Tate Law Offices in a multi-vehicle pile-up case that resulted in several fatalities and in many victims of serious injuries. We represented one family who lost a loved one in the accident and the Tate Law Firm represented a different family.
We settled our case before trial and secured a large recovery for our clients. The Tate law firm ended up trying their client's case all the way to a jury verdict.
Since our client's case had already been resolved, we were able to observe from the sidelines. They did an impressive job and ultimately got a sizable recovery for their client.
4. Frank Branson - The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson
Frank Branson will make almost any list of the best attorneys in Dallas – including this list of best truck accident lawyers in Dallas – no matter who is composing the list. Frank Branson has been practicing personal injury law for longer than just about anyone in existence. And he has an amazing track record of success.
One of the things that trial lawyers like myself admire about Frank Branson is that he doesn't win every single case he tries. We've seen where he takes risks on cases that some lawyers might be too scared to take. It is very easy to see why he's so admired when he's willing to go to the mat for a client, even if it's not clear that he will come out on top.
Moreover, his clients benefit from the fact that every defense lawyer in Texas knows that Frank Branson is willing to go to trial on any given case. That is something that always makes defense attorneys nervous. You combine that with the fact that Frank Branson has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for truck accident victims, and it's easy to see why he's so highly regarded.
5. Thomas J. Henry
Most folks know Thomas J. Henry from his flashy TV commercials. And I've had people say to me at various times that they assumed he was a celebrity lawyer and didn't actually get in the fight himself.
That is incorrect.
I had the pleasure of trying a case alongside Thomas J. Henry in Corpus Christi a few years back, and he is in fact a capable trial lawyer. The case that we litigated together was one where a gentleman was killed in a truck accident and I represented some of the claimants and Thomas J Henry's office represented some of the other claimants, so I had an opportunity to work alongside him at all stages in the case.
And even though, yes, he is someone who appears in flashy TV commercials, he is not simply a figurehead for his law firm. He is a fighter and will get into the ring.
6. Quentin Brogdon – Crain Brogdon Rogers, LLP
Quentin Brogden is a real lawyer's lawyer. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of Texas truck accident law. He is known for creating training materials that other members of the legal profession use, such as his step-by-step guide to investigating alternative defendants in commercial vehicle accident cases.
Quentin made a name for himself while working for the Law Offices of Frank L. Branson where he gained an impressive amount of trial experience. He has since left Frank Ranson's office and is now a partner at Crain Brogdon Rogers, LLP.
