According to San Antonio Police, early Monday morning, March 7th, a tragic automobile accident occurred, which left a man dead after his vehicle collided with an 18-Wheeler. These events took place on Loop 410 southbound, near the Pearsall Road exit, at around 3:45 a.m. The man’s dark-colored sport utility vehicle crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler that pulled off onto the side of the highway. He was trapped inside the automobile underneath the back end of the 18-wheeler. Sadly the man driving the SUV died. However, the driver of the 18-wheeler did not suffer injuries.
Car accidents are unique to each individual. The damages, injuries, and specific losses suffered by each individual injured in a car wreck will vary. Generally, most car accidents can be attributed to negligence or a momentary lack of attention, but some can also be attributed to reckless behavior. High-speed driving and driving while intoxicated (DWI or DUI) are examples of reckless behavior. In addition to understanding the rules of the road, our car wreck lawyers understand the special duties imposed on drivers and operators. Our practice of searching for answers over the years has sometimes allowed us to pinpoint the underlying causes of most car accidents and determine the responsible party. Our car accident attorneys have handled numerous car wreck losses over the past 15 years.
In most cases of liability claims, determining who is at fault in a car wreck is a matter of figuring out who is negligent. You can turn to our car accident attorneys for assistance in determining who was at fault in your accident. The first thing we’ll do is to obtain your police report, analyze the traffic laws, interview witnesses, and, if necessary, hire investigators or experts to determine who was at fault for your car accident.
If you’ve suffered injuries in a car accident, it’s in your best interest to hire an experienced attorney. Beyond the injury itself, victims suffer other losses — such as pain and suffering — that may not be as obvious at first. In many cases, several household members experience losses other than the physically injured individual, such as missed workdays and mental health issues. Injured victims frequently overlook these types of damages. This is why it is vital to have an experienced lawyer who knows what to look for.
