The Need for a San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyer
The San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyers at Carabin Shaw Law Firm recognize that a commercial truck accident can be much more catastrophic than an accident between two cars. Because of the weight difference, most of these accidents result in serious or even fatal injuries, and you may be entitled to recover compensation from the responsible parties for those injuries.Uniqueness of a Truck Accident Case
Accidents involving a truck increase the odds of serious injury or death for drivers/passengers of vehicles other than the truck. In fact, in 2012, 73% of the people hurt in truck accidents were occupants of the other vehicle The severity of the accident may also increase by the cargo being carried, i.e. hazardous, flammable materials or something that increases the weight of the truck.
