Truck Accidents in Texas
A truck accident can change your life in an instant. Unfortunately, we see thousands of innocent parties left with debilitating injuries following commercial vehicle crashes every year in our state. There are many cases where these accidents are caused by negligence. Leading factors in truck accidents include:
- Drivers who are speeding.
- Trucking companies that negligently hire drivers without determining if they were qualified.
- Cargo companies that load trailers inadequately.
- Maintenance companies that neglect their practices.
- Part manufacturers who offer defective parts.
Any of these actions can lead to a claim of negligence. In order to prevail, you must be able to demonstrate that the party was particularly negligent and that the action led to the crash taking place. After proving negligence, you may be able to seek financial compensation from the insurance company of the at-fault party.
One of the most difficult things to deal with after a truck accident is the insurance company. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, not paying out claims. They will do everything they can to minimize the amount of money they have to pay you. This is where a truck accident attorney can help you.

They will also make sure that all of your medical bills are covered and that you are reimbursed for any lost wages.
