In most cases, these collisions cause devastating personal injuries and/or wrongful deaths. Our attorneys are knowledgeable specifically about the types of 18 wheeler accident injuries and can help you understand your rights.
In addition to recognizing the various and potentially overlapping causes of accidents, our knowledgeable attorneys have an in-depth understanding of the various laws that come into play in Texas truck accidents and personal injury litigation. Some of these complex laws include those relating to logging hours, rest periods, maintenance requirements, and training. These details are often overlooked by some transportation companies to avoid taking responsibility for at-fault cases.
The law firm of Carabin & Shaw is thoroughly familiar with what is required by law. We are able to discern what would be considered an act of negligence, as well as what you may be compensated for by the trucking company due to the regulations they failed to comply with. Understanding and piecing together these regulations and laws should not be a burden for you to bear without the experienced support of one of our attorneys.What Types of Trucking Accident Cases Do We Handle?
Our law firm is well-versed in the myriad of ways that trucking companies avoid paying for their mistakes by trying to sidestep a victim’s legal rights. Contact an 18 wheeler accident attorney serving Victoria at Carabin & Shaw. We have handled numerous cases including:
- Victoria texting and trucking,
- Victoria commercial trucker driver fatigue,
- Reckless driving in Victoria,
- Victoria truck driver negligence,
- Drunk driving in Victoria,
- Victoria aggressive driving,
- Speeding in Victoria, and many others.
Many of these cases involve severe injuries that could have been prevented completely if only these trucking companies, and their drivers, would have had greater concern for those potential hazards. If they would have simply considered these careless mistakes might cost, they may have implemented safer driving practices in the first place. It’s often apparent that the easiest way to steer clear of accidents is to take proper precautionary measures. However, these practices are not consistent among trucking companies and thus cause hardship to unsuspecting drivers and their families.
