Semi Truck Accidents and 18-Wheeler Injury Claims and Lawsuits

Driving next to a large truck or an 18-wheeler can be intimidating, scary, and even a bit dangerous. A traffic accident involving a commercial truck, such as an 18-wheeler or big rig tractor trailer, can be much more catastrophic than an ordinary car accident. Semi truck accidents cause a significant number of car accidents, as well as fatalities, each year. A wreck with an 18-wheeler truck can devastate a life instantly.

With their tremendous size and sheer power, large trucks are one of the more troublesome aspects that drivers of smaller passenger cars have to overcome on a daily basis. With heavy (and sometimes dangerous or hazardous) goods being transported all across the country via truck (especially Texas and Houston), there is an overwhelming amount of semi truck traffic that passes over Texas roads and highways.

A typical, fully loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds. Because of the large size of semi trucks, any collision between a semi truck and another vehicle is likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries.

An accident involving a large commercial truck may create liability for not just the driver of the trailer, but also the owner of the container being transported and the owner of the load in the container. If you or a loved one is involved in a truck accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries by bringing a legal claim against any and all responsible parties.

No matter what type of injury you’ve suffered, it is important to seek representation from an experienced truck accident lawyer. Filing an insurance claim can feel very complicated, which is made worse when you are suffering from the pain of an accident related injury.
