Tens of thousands of semi-trucks travel our Texas highways all hours of the day, and an accident with one can be devastating. A large truck fully loaded can weigh up to 18,000 tons. This means that they are not able to react to conditions and changes as quickly as regular vehicles, nor can they stop on a dime.
When tragedy does occur on the road, the accident can be catastrophic. Many suffer serious, life-long injuries after a big truck accident that can affect their life as well as their family’s life. In many cases we handle, families have had to deal with the death of a loved one. We understand how difficult this is for everyone involved, so we make it our job to help families with the legal aspects of big truck accident.
Our team of experienced attorneys understands how to win financial compensation for the physical and financial damages that come from a big truck wreck. Those hit and hurt by an eighteen-wheeler are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damages, and even lost wages. In those unfortunate cases where the accident caused the death of a loved one, surviving relatives can take action through a wrongful death lawsuit in order to obtain money for medical bills, lost earnings, burial costs, and other damages.
Acting quickly is extremely important when dealing with 18-wheeler accidents. Evidence from the scene of the wreck along with information on the truck driver and the truck involved must be gathered before different elements, such as time, tarnish it. When this happens, it can affect how much we are able to obtain for the victim and their family. In order to ensure that you receive every dollar you deserve, do not wait another minute!
