Truck Accident Attorney

Properly maintained semi-trucks and tractor-trailers operated by competently trained and responsible drivers are an essential part of our nation’s economy. However, when negligence by a tractor-trailer owner or operator culminates in an accident with another vehicle, results can be absolutely devastating.

In the past 25 years, accidents involving 18-wheeler and tractor-trailers have risen by 10 percent. Even with this number continuing to increase, very little has been done to improve safety regulations. A skilled Texas 18-wheeler accident lawyer can work with you if you’ve been injured due to negligence by a tractor-trailer company or driver.

Why Do Tractor-Trailer and 18-Wheeler Accidents Occur?

The heightened potential for Texas tractor-trailer accidents derives primarily from the large stature of the trucks, extensive hours drivers are on the road, and massive pressure to meet deadlines–resulting in the failure to abide by speed limits. Tractor-trailers and semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and require roughly 350 feet to come to a complete stop from 60MPH. These trucks typically lack adequate maneuverability, and have a difficult time avoiding accidents and debris in the road. Many 18-wheelers also transport flammable and explosive materials, which can escalate minor accidents very quickly.

Texas Semi-Truck Accident Attorneys Can Help

Those who are injured or lose a loved one in a Texas semi-truck accident should seek retribution from the liable semi-truck/tractor-trailer company if their driver is at fault. The most successful manner of doing this is through hiring the best Texas truck accident attorney that will build you a strong case and file a lawsuit against the company/driver. This will increase the odds of getting your medical bills, expenses, and any hardships covered so that you are not left shouldering all of the financial responsibilities. In many circumstances, cases do not ever reach a courtroom because they are settled prior to things reaching to that point.

Following these types of accidents, victims are often left anxious and traumatized. If you or a loved one was affected in an accident with a semi-truck, tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, you have rights and help is available immediately. You need a knowledgeable Texas semi-truck accident attorney to represent your best interests. At Behr Law Firm, we can help answer any questions you may have and determine what compensation may be available to you.
