We are Focused on Getting You Justice

At Carabin Shaw, our firm helps those people who are accident victims involving big rigs, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, 18 wheelers and other heavy commercial trucks.

If they fail at this extra duty, Carabin Shaw will help you hold them liable and responsible for their bad actions or inaction.

Have You Gotten in a Truck Accident and Been Injured?

When there is a truck crash, of course the first thing everyone is concerned about is the wellbeing of all of those people involved. This, however, is just the start of things. You will have a great many things to worry about after the accident as well. A heavy commercial truck crash is always a complicated situation. In such a situation you have many responsibilities and legal rights. This is exactly the situation in which your veteran, experienced Midland truck accident lawyer like those at Carabin Shaw can be a big help. Our legal team can guide you in making your best decisions and ensure that you get the best possible chance to recover each and every penny of monetary compensation which the law allows you and to which you are legally entitled.

Hauling and trucking companies can be very slick and always have a bag of tricks to make it even harder or just plain impossible for you to recover what you legally deserve all by yourself. Carabin Shaw has more than 20 years of experience fighting the good fight against these hauling and trucking companies and the insurance adjusters they employ. Many of these fights are on behalf of the victims of accidents involving trucks to get people like you the fair and full compensation they deserve for any and all of their monetary and lifestyle damages.

Our Trucking Laws

Both the United States and our state of Texas have different laws and regulations both on the state and federal level which regulate all trucking and hauling companies and commercial truck drivers. When any of them violate these laws, it can frequently end in a serious collision which includes injuries to otherwise innocent motorists. Any legal entity or person who violates these safety regulations and laws and then causes an injury should always be held financially accountable for their negligent actions. When you need representation for violations of these laws, call one of our Truck Accident Attorneys in Midland and we can help.

The “Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations” (FMCSRs)

The Federal agency known as the “Motor Carrier Safety Administration” (FMCSA) both enacts and is in charge of enforcing a variety of different types of regulations which apply to any and all commercial vehicles which operate in interstate commerce in our United States. This can include buses, flatbed trucks, tanker trucks, semi-trucks and hazardous materials (HAZMAT) trucks, among others. These rules and regulations set the expected standard of behavior covering many if not most aspects of trucking. You need an attorney who knows and understands these rules and regulations. Our truck accident lawyers in Midland at Carabin Shaw have litigated them for years and know them far better than your average car accident lawyer.

State Traffic Laws in Texas

Along with the FMCSRs, all heavy truck operators are always expected to fully follow all of the local and state traffic laws when driving on Texas’ highways and byways. These are similar to the laws that apply to any other vehicle driver. They prevent violations of traffic signals, improper passing, reckless driving, following too closely and speeding, among many other things. These laws tend to be applied more strictly to heavy commercial trucks. If the truck driver violated one of these, he or she is probably negligent.

If you call our Midland Truck Accident Lawyers at Carabin Shaw, your initial consultation is always free. We take our truck accident cases on a contingent fee basis. We can be the strong fighter in your corner in your time of need.
