18 Wheeler Accident Attorneys in Corpus Christi TX - Seriously Injured in a Big Truck Collision

Semi-Trucks are constantly visible on Corpus Christi’s busiest roadways, like Highway 358, (also known as South Padre Island Drive), IH-37, and Texas State Highway (or the Crosstown Expressway). Unfortunately, this also means that accidents with these 18 wheelers are relatively common. If you’ve recently been seriously injured in one of these collisions, contacting a Corpus Christi 18 wheeler accident lawyer as soon as you are able can significantly improve your chances of winning your case and maximizing the compensation you are awarded.

The top Texas attorneys at Carabin Shaw have decades of experience representing all varieties of auto accident victims, including victims of trucking crashes. Call 800-862-1260 to schedule your free case review. During your initial consultation you’ll be able to ask any questions you have, and our legal professionals will advise you of your legal options moving forward.

How To Tell If You Have a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Texas

Trucking accidents are often severe and leave victims with serious injuries. That means they are faced with significant medical bills, missed work, and emotional distress in the aftermath. As with other car accidents, though, to win your lawsuit and the compensation you likely need, your Corpus Christi big truck accident attorney will have to prove negligence on behalf of the opposing party or parties.

18 Wheeler Accident Liability
  • The truck driver may have been negligent if they were driving while fatigued, distracted driving, reckless driving, or driving under the influence.
  • The trucking company itself could also be held liable if they failed to follow safety protocols, didn’t maintain their truck or its equipment properly, their driver was not trained correctly, or if they were pressuring their drivers to meet unrealistic deadlines (which may have caused speeding or drowsy driving).
  • A third party like the cargo loader, parts manufacturer, truck maintenance company, and other drivers may also be held responsible for their careless behavior.

To prove negligence, the plaintiff’s attorney must illustrate that the defendant (or the accused party) owed the injured client a reasonable duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty and that your injuries, pain, and suffering, are a direct result of those actions or inactions. If you believe your accident was due to the negligence of another, contact a Texas attorney to begin analyzing your case.

How Carabin Shaw’s Trusted Attorneys Can Help After a Truck Accident

It is important to note that while it isn’t required that a plaintiff — or the victim of the accident who was driving a pedestrian car — hire a lawyer to represent them, it is highly recommended. These semi-truck accident cases are complex; they involve multiple parties, multiple insurance companies, federal laws, state laws, court rules and regulations, and more. Having someone with extensive knowledge of the Texas court systems on your side means a much higher chance of winning your case and the maximum compensation you deserve.
