Laredo Truck Accident Attorney - 18 Wheeler Injury Attorneys at Carabin Shaw

With Laredo’s location in South Texas as a border town, drivers share the roads with 18 wheelers often. These big trucks are transporting goods like machinery, electronics, produce, and more. In early 2023 auto parts, passenger vehicles, and heavy-duty trucks were the top three imports from Mexico to the U.S. through Laredo.

If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident with one of these semi-trucks, you know first-hand the significant damage they can cause. Regardless of what is being transported, the drivers and trucking companies of these vehicles owe a duty of care to all other drivers. That means that if negligence or carelessness was a cause of your accident, you may be eligible to sue for damages. Contact the 18 wheeler injury attorneys in Laredo Tx at Carabin Shaw to discuss your legal options moving forward, and schedule a free case review.

Getting Compensation for Your Injuries After a Trucking Accident

In Texas, victims of personal injury cases (like those involved in a big rig collision) can file a lawsuit for economic, noneconomic, and punitive damages. While some damages like medical bills, lost wages, and property damage are relatively clear cut and easy to identify, a Laredo lawyer will help ensure that you file for all applicable damages. This may include noneconomic, or intangible losses, like pain and suffering, emotional anguish, disfigurement, and more. Punitive damages are rarely awarded and are done so in cases where the defendant, or accused party, acted in a particularly careless way and the judge intends to punish him or her.

Who Can Be Held Responsible for My Damages

At Carabin Shaw, our Laredo truck accident attorneys help you hold at-fault parties accountable for causing 18 wheeler accidents. We will first investigate the cause of your accident to decipher whose negligence led to the accident. Common parties sued for damages of such accidents include:

  • The truck driver for causes like driver fatigue to speeding, aggressive driving, improper lane changes, distracted driving, and more
  • The trucking company for failure to properly train drivers, creating overly demanding schedules for their drivers, not disciplining them for previous traffic violations, and more
  • Third parties such as the truck manufacturer for faulty brakes or steering failure, the cargo loader for exceeding weight limits or not securing cargo properly, or shipping company if hazardous materials weren’t disclosed, etc.
