There is no fee unless we can put money in your pocket.
Commercial vehicle accidents require specialized expertise in investigation and prosecution. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are constantly changing the minimum level of safe conduct by professional truck drivers and trucking companies.
These safety rules are the most critical evidence in many big rig accident lawsuits. So, getting an experienced attorney for a trucking crash claim is vital.
Additionally, the commercial truck accident case is generally more complicated when it involves multiple parties such as maintenance companies, motor carriers, and other potential defendants.

It depends – there are many different factors involved in valuing trucking accidents. Cases with a serious injury or wrongful death can lead to multi-million-dollar settlements.
The three main areas applied to all personal injury or wrongful death cases are a) liability, b) damages, and c) can I collect the damages?

In Houston, you will not find a more experienced or successful 18-wheeler accident attorney.
Some of the most compelling evidence in an 18-wheeler collision lawsuit will be violations of the safety regulations by the truck driver or the trucking company. The safety regulations are the minimum level of safe conduct acceptable for both the company and the driver.
Establishing violations of the laws is a priority to secure liability in the lawsuit and support the personal injury or wrongful death damages.
We have a team ready to investigate your case and aggressively prosecute it to a successful conclusion.
The main issues in commercial vehicle collision cases involve the amount of insurance for the commercial vehicle and health care subrogation with the victims.
Generally, tractor-trailers or other commercial vehicles carry a minimum of $1 million of liability insurance. There are a few situations where the truck may have less insurance and many cases where the truck is covered by excess insurance coverage with many millions of coverages.
Anytime your health insurance company pays a medical bill that can be part of a lawsuit against a trucking company, the health insurance company can be expected to seek to be paid back for the medical expenses they have paid. The payback obligation is called subrogation.
If we accept your case, we will also handle the liability and subrogation issues and work to maximize the compensation that you take home in your pocket.
The truck driver, the trucking company, and many other potential defendants. Some examples of defendants (other than the driver and trucking company) we pursued in commercial vehicle accident accidents include truck manufacturers, maintenance companies, and companies that loaded the vehicle.
The insurance company for the negligent truck driver is the ultimate payer of settlements or judgments against the truck driver or the truck company.
Insurance carriers for trucking companies do not want to pay fair value unless they are made to do so.
Do not for one second believe that an insurer for the truck driver will treat you fairly without an attorney.
If an adjuster is “accepting responsibility” or telling you to “send us your medical bills,”- run, do not walk, to the best trucking accident attorney you can find.
If you do not have health insurance and we accept your case, we will work with you to get you the treatment that you need without you having to pay out of your pocket to get needed medical care.
Severe injury and wrongful death cases can last for one to two years or more. The truck accident claim process can vary wildly depending on the extent of the medical treatment and actions taken by the trucker’s defense attorneys.
If your case goes to litigation, the timeline in Texas can depend upon the specific court and the county of the crash.
The more serious the injuries, generally the longer the case will take.
If you feel the accident was the responsibility of the truck driver, you should consult with a real truck accident attorney as soon as possible after the collision.
