San Antonio 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney

Bexar County commercial truck crash lawyer

San Antonio 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer Serving Bexar County

In situations where 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks are involved in collisions, victims may struggle to determine how best to proceed. While Federal law requires 18-wheelers to carry at least $750,000 in insurance, the insurance companies behind these policies have a lot to lose. The insurance adjusters who handle 18-wheeler accidents are highly experienced and they often use every trick in the book to minimize a victim's claim or to deny coverage outright. When you take on an experienced adjuster, you need to make them take you seriously, and you can do so by having an experienced personal injury lawyer in your corner.

At Alford & Clark Injury Attorneys, we know how to litigate cases involving trucking accidents. Our attorneys are well versed in the Federal and state laws that govern the trucking industry, and we have experience going toe to toe with some of the largest trucking companies in the country. We are a full-service firm and our team prides itself on client satisfaction. We can fully investigate a truck accident to determine who was responsible, and after identifying all liable parties, we will work with you to seek compensation that will fully address the damages you have experienced and ensure that your family will have the financial resources you need. If you have lost a loved one as the result of a trucking accident, we will help you hold the trucking company and its driver accountable for the wrongful death.

Legal Assistance for 18-Wheeler Accidents and Crashes

Most trucking companies are no strangers to litigation. Their vehicles can easily weigh 20 times more than an ordinary passenger vehicle like your car or light truck. When their massive commercial vehicles cause a collision, that impact usually results in catastrophic injuries or death for the driver of the small passenger vehicle. Any mistakes made by truck drivers can have deadly results, and if your family has been affected by these issues, you are most likely not the first person that has been hurt by the negligence and recklessness of a particular trucking company.

Following a collision involving a commercial vehicle, a trucking company may immediately send out a "crash team" of lawyers, accident reconstructionists, and private investigators to the accident scene. Their job is to secure the scene and start gathering evidence to show that their company and driver were not at fault. They may even try to influence the police officers investigating the accident, encouraging them to include or omit certain details from the accident report or even change their conclusions about the cause of the collision.

When you contact Alford & Clark Injury Attorneys after a commercial truck wreck, you will have your own team of attorneys and experts on the scene. We will work to find the evidence that the trucking company may be trying to minimize. We will do everything we can to make sure critical evidence is preserved and establish liability for your injuries and damages. We can assist with cases involving:

  • Driver fatigue caused by truck drivers violating hours of service regulations or remaining on the road when they are drowsy or otherwise unable to safely operate a commercial vehicle.
  • Equipment failure that led to a collision, such as faulty brakes, tire blowouts, detached trailer couplings, or electrical problems.
  • Cargo-related issues, including overloaded trucks or unsecured cargo that caused a truck driver to lose control or resulted in items falling into the roadway.
  • Jackknife truck wrecks in which an 18-wheeler and its trailer blocked multiple lanes of traffic or collided with one or more vehicles.
  • Truck crashes caused by speeding, distracted driving, or other forms of driver negligence.
