Houston Truck Accident

FAQ’s

No – we charge no money upfront to handle your case. All our cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. If we take your case, we will only get paid if we collect money from the defendant. You will have no out-of-pocket expenses for your attorneys or litigation expenses when you hire us. 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. We have been helping Texas families with 18-Wheeler accidents for over 35 years and have not lost a single case. You deserve a top-rated truck accident lawyer who can be there to help you win!
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? Because we have been handling tractor-trailer accident cases for over 35 years, we have unique experience in evaluating your case. Our results have been spectacular, and in 35 years, we have never lost a trucking accident case.
Trucking companies know us because we have handled hundreds of truck accident claims and recovered numerous multi-million-dollar results. 18 -wheeler truck accident cases have been the primary focus of our law practice for over three decades. While we are very selective in the cases we accept, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality representation if we take your case. We limit the number of cases that we accept and only handle tractor-trailer or other truck accident cases involving a severe injury or wrongful death. We are undefeated in trucking cases. You will not find a more experienced or successful 18-wheeler accident attorney in Houston.
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 safe conduct acceptable for 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 their medical expenses. 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. Trucking insurance carriers do not want to pay fair value unless 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.
The most important thing for anyone injured in an accident is to receive necessary medical care. Taking care of your injuries should be everyone’s top priority. If you do not have health insurance and accept your case, we will work with you to get the treatment you need without 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.
In Texas, wrongful death beneficiaries are limited to spouses, children, and parents who have survived the deceased. Other family members, such as brothers and sisters, cannot bring a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas.
The police officer’s determination of fault is not binding upon the court and may or may not even become evidence in a lawsuit. Texas is a proportionate responsibility state, meaning that you can be partly at fault and recover money as long as you are not more than 50% at fault. A Texas jury makes the ultimate determination of responsibility. If you feel the accident was the truck driver’s responsibility, you should consult with a real truck accident attorney immediately after the collision.

Maximizing your compensation involves proving a strong case for liability and damages. Getting significant evidence about the actions of the truck driver and the trucking company is vital for getting that top dollar for your case. Also, damages must be developed, documented, and proven. Treatment and testimony from reputable physicians, preferably specialists (like orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, or neurologists), are needed to prove causation and damages. We have been helping Texas families maximize their compensation after a truck accident for over 35 years. Call us at (281) 587-1111.
No- We suggest that you do not speak with the insurance company for the trucking company. Adjusters will seek recorded statements where they will ask questions designed to damage your case and help them defend their case. Nothing good comes out of a recorded statement given to the adverse insurance company. What you say will be used against you but cannot be used to help you. If we accept your case, we will handle all the communications with the adverse insurance company on your behalf.
