Truck Collisions in Texas

Truck crashes are often more serious than other types of vehicle crashes that we see here in the state of Texas. These crashes take the lives of hundreds of people each year while leaving thousands more injured. After being hurt in a truck accident, victims often have legal options available to help them move forward. One of the most common options that victims exercise is the filing of a personal injury case.

After a truck accident, there are various parties who can be held liable for any resulting injuries and damages that you have suffered. The truck driver might be liable if he or she was driving in a careless or reckless manner at the time of the accident. The trucking company might be liable if it hired an inexperienced or unqualified driver.

The cargo company might be liable if its actions led to an unsafe condition on the truck (for example, if it overloaded the truck). And the maintenance company might be liable if it failed to properly maintain the truck, and that failure led to the accident.

In order to determine who is actually liable for your injuries, you will need to investigate the circumstances of the accident and gather evidence. A skilled and experienced Houston truck accident lawyer can help you with this process and ensure that your rights are protected.

Your lawyer will be able to gather evidence from the scene, work with expert reconstructionists, and obtain evidence and information from various sources to build your case.
