Fort Worth Truck Wrecks Attorney

Lubbock Truck Wreck Lawyer

Attorney for Recovering Compensation After a Truck Accident in Texas or New Mexico

Large commercial trucks can be very dangerous. They are significantly larger than most other vehicles, and they can cause catastrophic damage in the blink of an eye. Drivers can be tired, inattentive, or just plain negligent. Studies have shown that distracted driving is more dangerous than drunk driving. Drivers entrusted with such dangerous instruments have an important duty to the public to be reasonably cautious in trying to prevent a motor vehicle accident that could harm or even kill others.

Trucking agencies can likewise be negligent in maintaining their fleets or supervising their drivers. There are many times that trucking companies require their drivers to drive beyond the legal hours-of-service limits, falsify driving logs, or commit other types of misconduct to make more money for the company at the expense of their drivers and the public. These companies need to be held responsible for the terrible harm caused by such actions. Our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you need while forcing the negligent party to pay.

How Our Fort Worth and Lubbock Lawyers Investigate on Your Behalf

When a truck crash has happened, it is a fairly safe bet that someone - including a driver or company - was careless about a safety issue. One of the first things we will do for you is to find out who made a mistake, and what mistake they made. We scour police reports, search for nearby traffic cameras, and interview countless witnesses in our search for proof of the truck driver or company's negligence. We often discover evidence showing that the driver has broken an important safety law, which can lead to a presumption of negligence that makes recovering compensation easier.

Routinely, we discover that the driver or their employer did something that reflects a carelessness toward the safety of others, such as:

  • No breaks - Commercial truck drivers are required by federal law to adhere to strict hours of service regulations designed to prevent driver fatigue.
  • Cell phone use - When a driver is operating a massive truck, taking their eyes off the road even for a moment to check a text message can have deadly consequences.
  • Speeding - Trucking companies often pressure their drivers to drive faster so they will get to their destination as quickly as possible at the expense of safe driving.
  • Poor maintenance - Truck maintenance can be a significant safety issue. Without proper care, truck tires can blow out, brakes may fail, the steering may stop working, or any number of other mechanical issues can lead to an accident.

The compensation recovered in a personal injury lawsuit related to a trucking wreck can be substantial. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost wages now and in the future, and more. If you lost a close family member to a careless trucker, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death action to recover for your loss.

The sad reality is that truck accidents can destroy lives. Many people who have been injured at the hands of careless truckers will not be able to return to life as usual due to disabilities. The goal of pursuing compensation is to hold the negligent party responsible, but also to leave you in the same financial position you would have been in before the accident. We will accept nothing less than a settlement you are fully satisfied with.
