It is common practice for insurance companies to call and record conversations to be used against you in court proceedings or settlement negotiations.
When an car or motorcycle is involved with a work truck in an accident, one outcome is always the same, the car loses. In serious 18-Wheeler accidents, you should consult an experienced 18-Wheeler accident attorney or you could lose twice. Hiring dedicated truck accident attorneys may mean the difference paying your own medical bills or having the financial resources to properly compensate you for your injuries. Simply put, if you hire just any lawyer and not a truck accident lawyer, you may be making a serious mistake.
18 Wheeler Accidents Are Life Altering & You Need Skilled Legal Representation
Drivers of large trucks and other vehicles involved in truck crashes are 10 times more likely to be the cause of the crash than factors such as weather, road conditions, and vehicle performance, according to a new study released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In the state of Texas, accidents involving heavy trucks during the period from 1995-2005 killed 912 persons and injured 15,845. 18-wheelers accounted for 47,316 accidents over this 10 year period, according to the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Highway Patrol. The risk to occupants of passenger cars in truck and 18-wheeler accidents are very high. Nearly 78 percent of the people killed and 84 percent of the people seriously injured in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are the occupants of the passenger vehicle.
After you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident involving a large truck, your focus should be on getting the medical attention you need to recover from your personal injury. As your San Antonio 18-Wheeler accident lawyer, I will handle the rest.
It is important for you engage a personal injury attorney as soon as possible, because evidence can be lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses fade over time. I will thoroughly investigate your case and collect all of the evidence necessary to properly evaluate and pursue it.
I will immediately start working on your case and order the police report plus any other relevant government records. I will travel to the scene of the wreck so that I have a clear understanding of what happened. In addition, as your 18-Wheeler accident attorney, I will also start talking with the insurance company and make sure they know that you are represented.
Most trucking companies train their drivers in methods for displacing blame away from themselves after an accident. I understand how to investigate trucking accidents, and how to expose driver negligence and violations of state and federal regulations that truck drivers often try and hide. If you’ve been seriously injured due to the negligence of a truck driver, contact Carleton Spears immediately to schedule an appointment and discuss your case.
