Truck Accident Attorney in Katy

Aggressive Representation for Serious Accidents

If you have ever witnessed or seen a truck accident, you probably know just how much damage a truck or large motor vehicle accident can cause. When an 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer is involved in an accident, there is almost always significant property damage along with very serious injuries. Sometimes even death can occur due to the magnitude of the crash.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, you may be entitled to file a claim against the party at fault. Our Katy truck accident attorney has a unique understanding of the trucking industry and extensive experience handling truck accident cases. We can help you fight for justice in the form of financial compensation.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Approximately one out of every eight traffic deaths in America involves an accident with an 18-wheeler or semi-truck. One reason for such horrific accidents is that truck drivers cannot see in certain blind spots around their large vehicle. Other causes can include vehicular failure. However, the cause of such accidents is often driver failure related to inattention, substance abuse, and/or sleep deprivation.

Many drivers do not follow the speed limits and rules of the road; big rig drivers can be pressed by deadlines and long hauls, resulting in driver fatigue. These drivers can fall asleep at the wheel or at least lack sufficient attention and readiness to avoid an accident, when a split second may mean the difference between life and death in an accident.

A trucker may be more concerned with keeping his schedule and delivering his load on time and less concerned with your safety and the rules of the road. Some truck drivers drive while under the influence, tailgate, or drive recklessly. Others may not be properly trained or licensed to handle big rigs.

Damages in Truck Accidents Cases

Because big rigs and trucks are usually much larger and heavier than the cars that they collide with, such accidents cause much greater damage to smaller vehicles than would an accident between two small vehicles. Though the worst 18-wheeler collisions can cause death, an accident can also lead to other severe injuries, including fractures, head injuries, and herniated discs.

If you have suffered a serious injury in a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Disfigurement

Our Katy truck accident lawyer is ready to fight for you. It is our job to hold responsible those who caused the accident, including the truck driver, the trucking company, and the manufacturer of the truck. Their negligence often is a major factor in such accidents.
