Austin Truck Accident Lawyers
Truck accidents cause many fatalities and serious injuries in Austin, Texas every year. Accidents between a semi truck and a driver of a car or motorcycle often leave the trucker uninjured while the auto or motorcycle driver suffers catastrophic injuries. Our truck accident lawyers are experienced with many kinds of truck accidents including semi-crashes, 18 wheeler accidents, and tire blowout accidents.
Our attorneys act quickly to preserve evidence after a trucking accident. We will contact witnesses and experts, visit the scene, and collect the necessary reports for optimal results in your case. Contact the McMinn Law Firm today.
Causes of Truck Accidents:
- Cell phone use (including texting)
- Failure to locate vehicles in their blind spots
- Fatigure and long shifts
- Following too close
- Poor maintenance and equipment failure (brakes, tires, etc …)
- Road debris
- Unsecured cargo
- Tight schedules that can lead to aggressive driving
At the McMinn Law Firm, we know the laws and regulations concerning the trucking industry. We also know the tricks that companies and drivers use to get around these laws. Because trucking accidents are frequently a result of a violation of one or more regulations, it is important to act quickly if you are involved in a trucking accident. Otherwise the evidence of misconduct on the part of the trucker or the truck owner could disappear or be altered.
Investigating a truck accident to build a strong case for compensation
If you have been involved in a wreck involving a semi truck, contact a knowledgeable trucking accident lawyer right away. The attorneys at the McMinn Law Firm know how to investigate truck accidents. On behalf of people injured (and the families of those killed) in trucking accidents, we have obtained compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs of a trucking accident.
We are familiar with the strategies used to avoid responsibility for accidents. Drivers alter required logs, eliminating proof of their violation of the regulation requiring regular rest breaks. Trucking companies change records to cover up their failure to follow required maintenance schedules. At our south Texas law firm, we get investigators to the scene quickly — investigators who know where to look to find evidence of misconduct.
We also help people injured in accidents with other types of trucks, including delivery vans, gravel trucks, and panel trucks. We provide the same speedy response and skilled investigation techniques in cases involving trucks other than semis.
Critical injuries and fatalities demand quick action
If you have been injured in a trucking accident or a loved one has been killed, don’t hesitate to contact the McMinn Law Firm as soon as possible. Frequent consequences of a truck accident include burns, amputations, brain and head injury, and spinal cord injuries — all expensive to treat and requiring a lengthy recovery period.
