The Dangers Of 18-Wheeler Traffic In Texas

Interstate 10, I-45, I-69 and other Texas highways are congested with commercial truck traffic at all times of the day. The situation can be dangerous under normal conditions. When negligent truck drivers are on the roads, the danger is increased significantly.

In handling truck accident injury claims, we aggressively seek out the facts to determine how the accident occurred and who is to blame. Trucking companies have deep pockets to devote to defending against these claims. They may immediately send investigators to the scene of the accident.

Your personal injury lawyer should be able to go toe to toe with trucking companies and their insurance providers. Our law firm has the experience, skill and resources to handle all aspects of your claim and to help you pursue maximum compensation for your losses.

We are proven trial advocates with a record of success helping victims of truck accident in Galveston, League City and throughout southeast Texas.

What Do You Need To Recover From This Trucking Accident?

Because of the speed and mass involved in trucking accidents, the resulting injuries are often severe and catastrophic. Accident victims may find their lives changed forever. If you have been injured in a big rig truck accident, you may require ongoing medical treatment, expensive medication, physical therapy, adaptive equipment, adapted living quarters and other needs.

Furthermore, you may not be able to work, or do the type of work you were accustomed to before the accident. Your quality of life may never be what it once was.

Our lawyers will fight to help you obtain full and fair compensation for all of these losses. We leave no stone unturned when assessing damages for truck accident injuries. We call upon leading experts in medicine, economics, life care planning and other fields who help us determine what our clients will need to pay for today’s needs and tomorrow’s.

Who Is Responsible?

There could be one party or multiple parties responsible for your tractor-trailer accident injury. In many cases, truck accidents are the result of negligence on the part of truck drivers. Common causes of such accidents are speeding, reckless driving, driver fatigue, distracted driving and driving under the influence.

In some cases, the trucking company may be responsible for accidents. Negligence on the part of trucking companies can include faulty hiring and employment practices and inadequate truck maintenance.

Other parties who may be responsible for truck accidents include truck component manufacturers, other drivers and agencies responsible for highway maintenance.

In handling your truck accident injury claim, we will work tenaciously to identify all liable parties. Our thorough, aggressive approach can ensure that you obtain compensation from all available sources.

We are also committed to making Texas roads safer for everyone. By holding negligent truck drivers, trucking companies and other parties liable for damages, we help deter others from contributing to the dangerous circumstances that lead to truck accident injuries.
