Truck Accidents Lawyers

In recent years, studies show that 70 percent of the people who died in all large truck crashes were occupants of cars or other passenger vehicles. If you or a family member were recently involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer, cement truck, or other big truck, you may be coping with pain, impairment, medical expenses, and a long recovery ahead – or worse – incomparable grief because of the tragic loss of a loved one.

After consultation and if we decide to work together on your case, our lawyers and staff will work aggressively to maximize justice for you and your family.

Semi Truck Accidents

We represent individuals and families in injury cases resulting from semi-truck accidents. While we cannot take away the physical, mental and emotional trauma, we can bring our experience, skills, and passion for justice to help you or a loved one in a time of crisis.

Semi-truck accidents can be the result of complex circumstances through which our attorneys can skillfully steer to a successful result on your behalf. It is critical that you have the right semi-truck accident lawyer working for you.

Truck Equipment Accidents

When representing people harmed in truck accidents, we understand the importance of conducting a thorough investigation to determine whether equipment failure caused or contributed to the accident.

One of the first steps we take when hired in a truck accident case is to send a “preservation of evidence” letter to all potential parties to the case including the truck driver, the trucking company as well as the owner of the tractor, trailer, and load. This letter requires these potential parties to preserve and not destroy critical evidence. When appropriate, we will have our experts inspect the truck itself to determine potential causes of the crash.

Underride Accidents

If you are suffering due to serious injuries or your family is grieving after a fatal trucking accident, please contact us. Our experienced injury attorneys in Houston, TX understand what to look for in the investigation of:

  • Underride accidents – when a smaller passenger vehicle goes underneath a large truck or other commercial vehicles because of the difference in height of the bumpers
  • Override accidents – when the truck essentially “runs over” the smaller vehicle because the truck bumper is higher than the bumper on the smaller vehicle

Truck Driver Negligence

After a trucking accident, it is essential that the crash is properly investigated to gather the facts and preserve critical evidence. If you and your family want full justice, all factors that caused or contributed to the crash must be determined so that all responsible parties can be held accountable. Truck driver negligence includes:

  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driver inattention
  • Driving while tired or fatigued
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs such as methamphetamines
  • Driving with an improperly secured load
  • Driving with an unbalanced load
  • Driving in excess of the maximum allowed hours or miles per day

Delivery Truck Accidents

Delivery truck accidents are not as simple as they may seem at first.  It’s not just the crash itself and reconstructing at the scene how it happened.  It’s also about discovering background and reasons leading up to the crash. All too often the crash is simply the end result of many decisions – intentional and unintentional – made by a trucking company and its driver well before the crash happens.
