Semi trucks are huge machines with the potential to cause catastrophic damage if they are involved in an accident. Unfortunately, the victims of these accidents typically suffer severe injuries that may require months, years or even a lifetime of medical treatment.
If you or a family member has been hurt in a big rig accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. As an El Paso trucking accident attorney at the Law Office of Douglas C. Smith, I may be able to help. I will work hard to help you get the full and fair compensation you need for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all other damages.
As a Texas truck accident attorney, I understand that there are many avoidable factors that may play into a commercial truck accident. I will thoroughly investigate what went wrong in an effort to hold all parties accountable for their roles in a semi accident. For example, driver fatigue may have contributed to the accident. However, the driver may have been fatigued because he or she was forced to work longer hours than are allowed under federal law. If that is the case, it may be possible to hold the driver’s employer liable for the tractor-trailer accident.
With more than 35 years of legal experience, I understand how to effectively advocate in a personal injury case. Allow me to deal with insurance companies and other claims so you can focus on your recovery.
Sadly, many 18-wheeler accidents end in fatalities. If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, it may be possible to file a wrongful death claim. I understand that no amount of compensation can replace the loss of a loved one. However, we can help send a message that negligent and irresponsible actions on the road will not be tolerated.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi-truck accident, you should seek legal representation as soon as possible. Contact me, an El Paso trucking accident lawyer, online or call (915) 593-6600 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case.
