18 Wheeler Accidents

"We have a well-earned reputation for building strong cases and taking them all the way through jury trial when necessary."
The sheer weight, mass, and momentum at play in a large truck accident contributes to numerous catastrophic injuries and fatalities on our Texas roadways. Because of these well-known risks, trucking companies and drivers are subject to an array of laws intended to protect our safety. At Montes Law Group, LLP, we know these laws and the critical nuances of truck accident cases well.
If you have been injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or other large commercial truck — or if you have tragically lost a family member in this type of an accident — we are experienced in handling catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases. When you contact us, we will move quickly to investigate the scene and evaluate your potential case.
A Comprehensive Approach to 18 Wheeler and Big Truck Accident Cases
Our attorneys have handled 18-wheeler accident and big truck accident cases all across Texas and the United States. Truck accident (or "big rig" accident) investigations and litigation can be extremely complex because the truck drivers and trucking companies often falsify documentation to cover up the fact that the company is not properly maintaining the brakes and tires to these trucks.
Truck accident and 18-wheeler accident investigations frequently involve retrieving satellite and GPS information as well as "black box" and other crash data to re-create the accident and the factors that caused and contributed to the accident. All too often, the truth is that the driver has been driving while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or stimulants or is suffering from sleep deprivation because he or she has been driving for too many hours.
If you or a loved one have been injured by a big truck or 18-wheeler accident, it is essential for you to contact an attorney as quickly as possible to protect your rights, because the truck driver and the trucking company will immediately get their insurance company and attorneys involved to protect them from any claim you may make. Not every attorney is prepared or equipped to handle these catastrophic cases, especially ones involving severe spinal injury, brain injury, other major injury, and death. You need a lawyer that is experienced and capable of handling your unique case.
