A lot of semi-trucks travel at a high rate of speed, especially on highways in Texas. A typical fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh nearly 20 times more than an average passenger car. Add these factors together, and you have a recipe for disaster. Even the most advanced car with the latest safety features is no match for an 18-wheeler. Due to the height, weight, and size of a semi-truck, passenger vehicles typically sustain the bulk of the damage when the two collide.

Truck Accident Injuries
Loss of a limb or the amputation of a leg or arm may be the consequence of a serious truck accident. While an amputation is commonly associated with accidents involving motorcycles or pedestrians, they are common with truck accidents, too. Whatever the circumstances surrounding your limb amputation, our truck accident attorneys can help you get the compensation you need and deserve.
Truck wrecks sometimes produce fires or explosions that can cause first-, second-, or third-degree burn injuries. A lot of people who suffer burn injuries from a truck accident must deal with permanent scarring and disability. A burn injury might occur as a result of exposure to fire, but also could be the result of a chemical exposure. Whatever the cause of your burn injury, recovery is typically long and painful. Our truck accident lawyers can help you pursue compensation for your pain and suffering, and emotional distress, as well as medical expenses and the costs related to medications and treatment.
Head injuries are some of the most common injuries victims sustain in truck accidents. While a head injury is always serious, the severity can range from a mild concussion to permanent brain damage and blindness. Treatment for a head injury can be expensive. There are many costs associated with head injuries, from initial treatment to long-term rehabilitation. In many cases, a head injury victim is unable to return to work or perform routine tasks around the home. Our truck accident attorneys typically conduct a comprehensive analysis of a brain injury case. Our goal is to make sure the injured person and their family are fully compensated.
The spine runs from the base of the skull to the lower back and contains bones called vertebrae. Between the vertebrae are jelly-like discs that can absorb forces placed on the vertebrae. The spinal cord, which runs through the spinal column, carries information from the brain to the rest of the body. In a truck accident, any of these parts of the back can be damaged. The result can range from whiplash to a spinal cord injury which results in temporary or permanent paralysis. Even if the spinal column is left unharmed, the muscles surrounding the spine might sustain small tears in an accident. Recovery from neck or spine injuries can take weeks or months, but some people must live with back problems for the rest of their lives. Whatever the circumstances of your neck or spine injury, our truck accident lawyers want to meet with you and help you through your complicated legal issues.
