Who to blame for my truck accident injuries and how do I recover?

Semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers are each a type of large commercial vehicle that can potentially cause catastrophe on Texas roads. When a regular passenger vehicle comes in contact with a large truck, such as these, it can mean serious injury or even death for the passengers and driver. Sometimes these accidents are due to negligence or errors on behalf of the trucking company or the driver. If this is the case the injured should seek compensation for their injuries or wrongful death.

There are many possible ways that the truck driver or truck company can make poor choices that put civilians in danger. These decisions are all based on the concept of time. The trucks are on tight delivery schedules and, due to this, this could cause them to make poor decisions that could lead to an accident with a passenger vehicle. For example, the trucking company could put illegal weight in the back of a truck or schedule a truck driver to drive too many consecutive hours or miles that leads to truck driver fatigue which can result in truck accidents.

There are many ways to prove that a truck driver or company is negligent. It all begins with a thorough investigation. There are many aspects to investigate when it comes to a personal injury suit against a truck company. A great place to start is with the truck company. Paper trails are a great way to find red flags such as overweight cargo and running the driver too many miles. Strict federal regulations are in place in order to prevent truck drivers and companies from causing accidents such as the one that has negatively affected you and your family.

Remember that these regulations are in place for a reason and if broken can mean major consequences for both driver and company. Take advantage of any leverage you have in this situation in order to recover for your losses. We at Reed & Terry L.L.P. understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family and will treat your case with the utmost compassion. However, we are aggressive in negotiations and in the courtroom and this is necessary in order to recover for what you have lost.
