Fighting For You Where accident victims turn to after injury We have collected millions for our clients

We work to hold inattentive, tired drivers accountable

A previous post on this blog talked about why it is so important for truckers in the Houston area to driver awake and alert at all times. Basically, if a trucker is not paying attention, or if he or she is too tired to respond quickly to an emergency, he or she is unlikely to be able to bring his or her truck to a stop in enough time to prevent a serious accident.

Whenever we take on a new case involving an injury in a truck accident, our office's philosophy is that, in many if not most cases, the truck driver is in the best position to avoid an accident and, given the size difference between trucks and cars, has an important obligation to do what they can to avoid collisions.

If a trucker doesn't leave enough time to stop due to inattention, fatigue, or some other reason, that driver and his or her trucking company should be willing to the victims of the ensuing accident full compensation for his or her losses.

Sadly, many trucking firms do not share the same view but instead spend a lot of time and money right after an accident circling the wagons in order to avoid paying or, if they can't realistically avoid liability, minimizing how much they will have to pay.

We believe truck accident victims also need an experienced team on their side who know the law well and will fight hard to get them every penny of compensation that they are legally entitled to. That's why we recommend that victims contact us so they can evaluate their legal options as soon as reasonably possible after an accident.
