Truck Accidents

Truck accident litigation involves claims against negligent truck drivers and the trucking companies who hire them. Under Federal law as well as Texas law, a driver of a large truck is considered to have an even greater standard of care than other drivers, because of the injuries that their large trucks can cause. Truck drivers break federal laws by driving while fatigued, in excess of the amount of hours they are allowed to drive, at an excessive speed, with overloaded or over sized trucks, and improperly maintained trucks.

Collisions caused by a truck’s failure, faulty inspection and maintenance, or a truck driver’s negligence, can lead to catastrophic injuries.When you put something that heavy on our roads at speeds topping 60 miles an hour, you get a potentially very dangerous situation, with a massive motor vehicle that can run over almost anything in its path. If you add the growing problem of driver fatigue and truck drivers’ being under constant pressure to move cargo – there can be deadly consequences.

Today, with the ever-changing advancements in technology, there is a lot we can learn from analyzing every detailed involved in an accident. Our attorneys and experts use the following information tools to properly help our client's case, truck maintenance records, driving records, driving log books, driver employee records, drug test results, on board computer (black box) data, Department of Transportation data.

Once our investigation of the trucking accident is complete, we head into settlement negotiations or to trial with evidence on our side. Our attorneys know how to prepare and win cases. Our truck accident lawyers work on a contingent fee basis, which means that there is never a fee that you have to pay unless we successfully resolve your truck accident case.

To recover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma, truck accident victims should contact an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. Our lawyers swiftly consult experts such as accident reconstruction experts to gather facts and begin a thorough and far-reaching investigation. Our truck accident attorneys speak with and take depositions from eye-witnesses and company employees.
