We Understand Trucking Accident Laws
In a country that relies heavily on large trucks for transportation, serious accidents happen every day. As such, the transportation industry has many regulations, including those governing vehicle maintenance and the number of hours a driver can be on the road each day. This is supposed to protect you and your family’s safety, but many drivers and companies do not follow those rules.
If you or your family member has been involved in a trucking accident, you need a team that understands the laws and regulations that govern trucking. At The Armstrong Firm, we have dedicated ourselves to passionately fighting for people who have been injured or killed as the result of a trucking accident. We are a family-owned law firm that represents clients in Brownsville, San Antonio and the surrounding region of Texas.
How Do Trucking Accidents Differ From Car Accidents?
In crashes involving passenger cars, there are usually only two potential sources of liability: the drivers. Truck accidents, though, can have more than one source of liability. Some examples include:
- The truck driver
- The company that owns the truck
- The truck manufacturer
- The maintenance company
- The cargo loading company
- The company that trains drivers
We will identify all sources of liability involved in your injury case. Then, we will take the steps necessary to preserve evidence and present a conclusive claim.
What Should I Do After A Truck Accident?
After a crash involving a commercial truck, try to follow these steps:
- Take a picture of the accident scene.
- Contact the police.
- Get the name and contact information of the driver and any witnesses.
- Get medical treatment.
- Do not speak with an insurance company representative.
Don’t assume that big trucking companies will inform you of your rights in case of an accident. Let our experienced team of attorneys provide you with counsel so you can focus on helping your family heal.
