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:
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.
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.
