Truck drivers are specially trained to operate large vehicles, and they’re held to a higher standard than other drivers. They carry the added responsibility of handling their vehicles in a way that ensures the safety of the motorists around them. When they fail to do so and accidents happen, it can lead to extremely serious injuries to victims.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or company-owned truck, you should speak to a reliable Houston, Texas truck accident attorney who can help you understand your rights and legal options. At the Law Offices of Ben Dominguez, we provide comprehensive representation to clients throughout the Greater Houston area who have been injured in truck accidents.
Ready To Represent You In Any Truck Accident Case
Resolving truck accident claims can be quite complex due to the multiple parties that could be held partially liable. In addition to the driver, it’s possible for the driver’s employer, the owner of the truck, the maintenance company that serviced the truck, and other parties to all share in the responsibility for your injuries.
Some of the truck accident cases we handle include:
Truck Driver Negligence
In addition to the traffic laws that govern the conduct of every Texas driver, truck drivers are required to follow strict safety regulations issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Any violation of state or federal laws puts the driver and other motorists at significant and unnecessary risk. Operating a commercial vehicle requires a great deal of skill. Even the smallest mistake by a truck driver can result in catastrophic accidents and severe injuries.
We are prepared to help you with any truck driver negligence claim, including accident claims that arise from the following:
- Driver fatigue
- Drunk or drug-impaired driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Following too close
Company-owned Truck Accidents
We see them on the road every day–Company-owned trucks delivering packages, hauling cargo, and performing any number of other tasks for their employers. The drivers of these trucks have tight schedules to keep, and the pressure can sometimes result in questionable decision-making that puts other motorists in danger.
We also have experience handling trucking accident claims, including:
- Accidents caused by unsecured loads
- Accidents resulting from negligent truck maintenance
- Jackknife accidents
