Advocating For You After A Truck Accident
Eighteen-wheeler accidents present unique issues not necessarily associated with a typical auto accident. Serious and fatal injuries are more common. Due to the serious nature of these crashes, it is vital to work with experienced legal counsel right away.
Our attorneys at Dilley Law Firm have more than four decades of experience helping victims and families in San Antonio and McAllen and throughout Texas after trucking accidents. As experienced trial lawyers, we understand what laws and guidelines are used to hold negligent truck drivers and truck companies accountable after a crash.
Diligent Review And Investigation Of Your Accident
Our goal is to maximize your recovery after an accident. We do this by hiring the top experts in the country to reconstruct the accident to determine the cause of the crash and who should be held liable.
We will thoroughly investigate the reason for the accident. This includes determining if any laws and safety regulations were violated by the truck driver or trucking company, such as the hours-of-service rule that mandates how long truck drivers can be behind the wheel before taking a break. We will also investigate to determine the following:
- Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
- Was the driver fatigued or driving for too long?
- Does the driver have a record of poor driving?
- Was the driver distracted or using a cellphone?
- Was the trailer unbalanced or poorly restrained?
- Did the truck have defective tires or other equipment?
We are diligent in our investigation, and we will protect your rights throughout this process. Part of our investigation includes interviewing witnesses and obtaining accident reports and medical records to build a strong claim. We will also help you find appropriate medical care to address your immediate and long-term care needs.
