Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Commercial Accident Law Firm
Best Commercial Accident Lawyers in East Texas

Each year there are roughly 33,000 total commercial vehicle accidents. With restricted visibility and limited ability to maneuver, semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are a challenge to operate. Even the most competent driver must work diligently to navigate these enormous vehicles and safely share the roads with smaller cars. However, due to their long hours, many commercial truckers suffer from fatigue, leading to a high rate of collisions with other vehicles on the road. Other common causes of 18-wheeler accidents include:

  • Driver inexperience and /or improper training
  • Speeding and/or reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence or alcohol or drugs (which may be used to stay awake for long periods of time)
  • Improperly loaded or oversized vehicles
  • Poorly maintained brakes, tires, or safety equipment

In the Event of a Commercial Vehicle Accident, What Should I Do?

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, time is of the essence. To determine whether the truck driver or trucking company violated Texas law or any of the safety rules outlined in the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations, it is imperative to carefully examine the company’s records as soon as possible after an accident. These records often reveal serious and sometimes fraudulent violations of safety regulations, such as driving for long periods of time in excess of limits set by state and federal law. Our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of the regulations governing the operation of commercial vehicles and can gather the information and evidence needed to substantiate your case.

What about Compensation and Recovery?

If the negligence or recklessness of a driver or trucking company caused your personal injury or the loss of a loved one, you deserve to recover for the harm you have suffered. Recoverable damages for injured parties include both economic damages, such as medical costs and lost wages, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. Injuries suffered in accidents with commercial trucks often require extensive care and hospital stays, and some trucking companies do not have insurance policies that will cover the full extent of the costs. Our extensive background in pursuing recovery from both insurance companies and corporate entities gives us the ability to obtain the full compensation you deserve, whether the case ends in negotiations or litigation.

Injury Types

Damage to the spinal cord resulting in what is classified as a complete injury often results in the diminishing of nerve sensation and movement depending on the severity. This injury is defined as paralysis. The victim of this type of injury must deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives. These limitations often hamper their financial wellbeing as well.
Spinal Injuries
With larger impacts, damaging compression of the spine and spinal cord could lead to broken bones or nerve damage. This type of injury can be a precursor to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs resulting in an impact of the victim’s quality of life for the foreseeable future.
Wrongful Death
A loved one’s death because of a fatal accident caused by negligence can be financially and emotionally devastating. Negem & Worthington strives to let families focus on their emotional recovery while helping recover damages though compensation or reimbursement for the changes following the accident.
