Accidents that involve commercial trucking vehicles such as semi trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, and tanker trucks tend to be especially damaging for the victims and their families. Unfortunately, these accidents are far from uncommon. With truck drivers working odd hours and extended shifts, the chances of some sort of accident are greatly increased. In addition, commercial trucks are often navigating busy, traffic-filled highways in major cities such as Houston, a hub for a variety of commercial industries that rely heavily on the transportation provided by trucks and 18-wheelers.

Sadly, due to the size, weight, and power of these commercial vehicles, when such accidents occur, they tend to result in debilitating injuries, or much worse.

What to Know About Truck Accident Cases

When a vehicle is hit by an extremely large commercial vehicle such as a semi-truck, tanker truck, or tractor-trailer, the resulting damage can be devastating. From life-altering injuries to lost wages to wrongful death, the damages of a truck accident can be life-changing for the victim and their family.

This is why it’s important for victims or family members of victims of truck accidents to seek the damages they deserve by partnering with a truck accident lawyer in a lawsuit for compensation. The law surrounding truck accidents is more complicated than the law for general automobile accidents. Although much of the process is the same, the plaintiff and their attorney must prove negligence and damages.

Unique aspects of truck accident litigation that only an experienced truck accident lawyer can properly navigate include:

  • Vehicle code adherence applicable to commercial trucks
  • Trucking industry regulation such as licensing and training requirements of commercial truck drivers
  • Expert witnesses
  • Damages that can only result from truck accidents due to their size and power

Why Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer to Help with Your Case?

The results of an 18-wheeler or trucking accident can be devastating. For victims seeking the damages they are entitled to following a truck accident, legal action is often the right choice. However, many victims may not realize what they’re up against when pursuing litigation with a trucking company.

After an accident, you are likely to face the considerable legal firepower of a truck’s parent company, their insurance, and other parties that usually arm themselves with teams of attorneys whose goal it is to avoid taking responsibility at all costs. Trucking company lawyers will not only often try to lowball clients, but may also initially fight to give them nothing at all.

As victims pursue their truck accident cases, they may find it surprising that the trucking company, the driver, and the insurance companies will each do everything in their power to pay out as little money as possible despite the devastating injuries and losses that resulted from the accident. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a commercial truck or 18-wheeler accident, it is critically important that you speak to experienced truck accident lawyers who can take on such cases.

Proving fault and negligence is essential to winning your case against a powerful trucking company’s legal team. You should contact a firm that handles truck accident cases regularly. Having a truck accident attorney with considerable experience on your side will help you get the financial help you need.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
