Houston Truck Accident Lawyer
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in the year 2000, around 457,000 large trucks were involved in collisions throughout the United States. These trucks had a gross vehicle weight rating over ten thousand pounds, with over four thousand of these accidents involving big-rigs resulting in death. Large truck accidents were responsible for one out of every eight highway deaths in 2000.
Trucking and transportation liability cases involve a complicated group of laws and large amounts of evidence. Because the industry is heavily regulated, an accident involving a truck is significantly more complex than an automobile accident case. Frequently, an action can be brought against both the driver and the insurance company. Consequently, you need a truck accident attorney that has the experience and specialized knowledge to lead the investigation into the cause of the accident and to help you collect the maximum amount allowed under the law.
