Austin Gravel Truck Wreck Victim Retains McMinn Law Firm

Representing a driver hurt in last week’s heavily publicized gravel truck crash in Austin, personal injury lawyer Justin McMinn filed a lawsuit against Marcos Trucking Corp.

Delaney Nelson, a student at Concordia University, was driving to class last week when the commercial dump truck hauling gravel careened out of control across all lanes of 2222, smashing Delaney’s car and causing her serious injuries.

“Glass was embedded in her face and ears and she has also had significant spinal issues,” said the victim’s attorney Justin McMinn.

A dash cam in a vehicle witnessing the accident recorded the brutal collision. The witness shared the truck crash video which quickly was picked up by more than 60 online outlets, publicizing the crash and documenting important evidence.

“Anybody that watches that video, their first reaction is oh my gosh, how many people died in the accident? Fortunately here nobody did die,” said Justin McMinn.

"Jason, Justin, and their entire support team represented me in an accident involving an 18 wheeler. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome, and maybe as importantly, the service along the way was something you would want as a client, their entire team was amazing! I can with great confidence recommend them to friends, family, and to anyone who happens to read this. Thank you McMinn Law Firm for a job well done!"

"The McMinns were amazing. Within two days of my accident – and still barely able to move – I received a visit to my house for personal consultation (on a Saturday). All the initial feedback about my potential case turned out to be 100% accurate, and when it finally came time to settle they didn’t back off an inch. …If you’re hurt, make the call."

- Harry

"I was rear ended by a large truck. Am thankful for Justin and Jason and their team and all the hard work they put into resolving my case! I highly recommend that you contact them if you’re injured in a wreck!"
