Hill Country Types of 18-Wheeler Accident Injuries

The substantial size of 18-wheelers, tractor trailers, semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles is the main factor for the staggering destruction wrought in these Hill Country types of 18-wheeler accident injuries. This catastrophic class of injury typically requires urgent and continued medical care, and sometimes they may cripple a person’s earning capacity and ability to work, or result in even permanent physical disfigurement.

Many Hill Country 18-wheeler accidents happen due to the excessive pressures of truck drivers’ schedules, which may cause them to drive erratically or dangerously in order to meet deadlines. At other times, drivers engage in flawed or absent-minded driving, misjudging poor road conditions or their vehicle’s capabilities, or even operating while they are intoxicated. Any of these conditions are clear indicators of the truck drivers’ liability, and therefore rights to compensation for victims of any resulting accidents.

Two types of damages eligible for compensation are recognized under common law: general and special.

  • General damages are defined as losses that are subjective and open to interpretation, such as emotional and psychological damage, or loss of property with sentimental value.
  • Special damages are losses with concrete economic value, such as medical bills, property loss, and loss of expected income.

Both types of damages may precipitate from an accident injury in a variety of ways. The law offices of Carabin & Shaw have experience handling all manner of injury cases that result from 18-wheeler accidents in the Hill Country, such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Death

The danger and challenges presented do not always disappear even after the collision. The problems may grow worse if the case is improperly crafted by an inexperienced litigator. Therefore, the current, legally defined rules and records need to be delicately examined, preferably by our detail-oriented attorneys. At our law firm, we have the capacity to organize and analyze data effectively in order to confront the case with the latest and most advanced legal methods available.

Our attorneys know that when trucking companies are at fault, they often refuse to acknowledge and accept responsibility for their mistakes. These companies have been known to deceive victims and block them from potential compensation. While they may initially act concerned, they only care to elevate the argument in their favor, and defendants often employ this false sympathy as a tactic right before suggesting low settlement offers.

Commercial trucking insurance companies are also known to tamper with evidence, such as trucking log books or maintenance records. These insurance companies also know that they will be granted protection by statutes of limitation if enough time passes, and may try to delay legal action for as long as they deem necessary. Thus, it is important that you trust your case to team of specialized lawyers, such as those employed by Carabin & Shaw.
