According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 4,000 people are killed and over 100,000 are injured in crashes with big trucks every year. Not surprisingly, the truck driver is not often the one who is injured or killed in these crashes. In fact, 75 percent of the injuries and fatalities resulting from truck crashes are occupants of other vehicles. Big rigs pose big hazards on the roadways of Texas and it is all too easy for a careless or negligent trucker to cause a large amount of damage. Some causes of trucker-error crashes include:
Proving that one of these failures let to the truck wreck that injured you requires a thorough investigation by an experienced truck crash attorney. The lawyers at the Cain Law Firm will gather evidence such as driving records, hours-of-service logs, truck black boxes, inspection records, and more. We will look into every possible liable party, including the driver, his employer, the company who loaded the cargo, and government agencies responsible for maintaining road conditions and construction zones. We will put in the work necessary to get you the settlement you will need to support you as you recover from your catastrophic injuries.
