Truck Accident Lawyers

Have you been injured in a truck accident? Our attorneys are here to help you fight back.

In Houston, truck accidents are an unfortunate result of the heavy traffic in our fast-paced metropolitan area. And throughout Texas trucking crashes are a frequent reality and a leading cause of serious life-altering injuries and fatalities.

When a truck crash happens, the person or family harmed must then deal with the aftermath – bills for past medical treatment, uncertainty of how to pay for future medical treatment, deciding on the right medical providers, loss of earnings, the effect the injuries have on everyday living, and more. In the meantime, know that the at-fault trucking company and its insurance company will immediately begin putting together its story of what happened and why it is not their fault. These companies have been through this before and will make every effort to take advantage of the inexperience of an injured person and their family to protect themselves.

    Serious Lawyers for Serious Cases

    My spine was injured when an 18-wheeler crashed into a car I was riding in. I was worried about how I would pay my medical bills since I couldn’t work due to my injuries. Michael and Casey took on the trucking company and its insurance company and made sure I was fairly compensated. I would definitely recommend them to anyone seriously injured by an 18-wheeler.

    Casey Brown

    Casey was inspired by his father, a long-time insurance agent, to start his law career representing insurance companies. However, after a few years he realized that insurance companies worked hard to offer their clients the lowest possible payout, which lacked the integrity of his father’s work. He decided to use his insurance expertise to help people. He switched sides and joined Michael representing people against corporations and insurance companies.

    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.

    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 with an improperly secured load
    • Driving with an unbalanced load
    • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs such as methamphetamines
    • 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.

    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

    If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident and are looking for a law firm that will make your case a priority, contact us now for a no-cost consultation to discuss what we can do to help.
