Sharing the roads with semis is unavoidable in Texas. It can also be extremely dangerous. Weighing 80,000 pounds or more, commercial trucks pose significant threats to smaller passenger vehicles. In a collision between the two, the semi-truck will always win. No matter how safely you drive, a negligent truck driver or trucking company could cause a catastrophic or deadly collision. If you were in a Mesquite semi-truck accident, contact the Law Firm of Aaron A. Herbert, P.C. for a free consultation. We may be able to help you obtain compensation.
Truck accident cases involve complicated rules on both a state and federal level. Rather than only dealing with another driver, you will have to contend with a commercial trucking corporation and its powerful legal team in the pursuit of compensation. Hiring a lawyer can help you level the playing field and improve your odds of achieving fair results for your semi-truck accident injuries. Otherwise, you may be unable to negotiate the type of award you require to move forward.
Recovering compensation for a truck accident takes identifying the proximate, or main, cause of the collision. Only then can you determine the defendant to take your claim. The defendant may be the trucking company for its own negligence or that of its drivers and staff members. It could also be a truck owner, manufacturing company, cargo company, third-party driver, property owner or another party.

You have rights as the survivor of a semi-truck accident in Texas. The state’s civil justice system allows you to pursue financial compensation from the at-fault party if you can prove that a party’s negligence caused your accident. Protect this right by building your case from the start. Gather evidence while still at the scene of the crash, such as photos of your personal injuries and vehicle damages. Call the police to report the truck accident. Do not confess fault for the crash to the truck driver, the police or an insurance company.
