Special Considerations Involved in Trucking Accidents
Because truck accidents usually involve commercial vehicles, issues arise that are not found in car and automobile crashes:
Freight and overweight Issues
Negligent hiring claims
Negligent supervision claims
Negligent truck maintenance claims
State and federal trucking rules and regulations
Both truck drivers and trucking companies are required to follow strict regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other state and federal agencies. When such regulations are ignored, innocent drivers and passengers are put at risk of serious injury or wrongful death. At my law firm, I'm committed to holding negligent commercial truckers and trucking companies responsible for the damage and loss they cause.
Since 1977, I have been fighting for full and fair compensation for injury victims and their families throughout Texas. I'm certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and I have a reputation for aggressive trial advocacy. I never back down from the toughest opposition in order to pursue the best results possible for my clients.
