Laredo 18 Wheeler Accidents

There are many reasons eighteen-wheelers are dangerous, starting simply with the fact that they are very large and heavy in comparison to the typical passenger vehicle. Commercial trucks carry big risks: their extraordinary size and weight - 80,000 pounds of sheer metal - make it difficult to stop, corner and maneuver quickly. They have large blind spots. Without proper upkeep, the chance for vehicular failure is high. Unfortunately, the consequences are big, too: truck accidents can result in catastrophic injury and disability including brain damage, spinal cord injuries, fractures, disfigurement, burns, amputations, paralysis and even death.

If you or a family member has suffered a personal injury or a tragic loss as a result of an accident or collision with a semi tractor-trailer, you and your family may be entitled to damages. These damages can include the cost of medical expenses, burial costs, mental anguish, pain and suffering, lost wages, bodily impairment, future damages, future cost and property damage to your vehicle or personal property. In some cases punitive damages are available. Crabin & Shaw handle 18 Wheeler Accident cases including:
