Houston and Galveston: Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers
Motor vehicle accidents involving semi-trucks or 18-wheelers are more complicated than many other types of motor vehicle accident cases. Trucking accident cases present issues not found in a typical car crash case. Because of our many years of experience helping victims of trucking accidents, the attorneys at the Law Firm of Alton C. Todd have an in-depth understanding of how to build a strong personal injury claim on behalf of trucking accident victims. Our trial lawyers stay completely up-to-date on the regulations and laws that the trucking industry must comply with. We use that knowledge to help determine the truth behind your accident.
In his more than three decades of practicing law, our principal attorney Alton C. Todd has handled hundreds of truck accident cases. Mr. Todd is one of a small number of Texas attorneys certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in two different areas: personal injury and civil litigation. If you are seeking legal counsel after a trucking accident — either for yourself or a loved one — we encourage you to contact the Law Firm of Alton C. Todd to schedule a free case evaluation.
Trucking Accident Victims Deserve Protective Advocacy
In an accident between a car and a semi-truck, the truck almost always wins. Sadly, this is sometimes the case with the accident victims as well. After a trucking accident, the trucking company will immediately send out professional accident investigators and persuasive insurance adjusters to seek evidence to minimize any settlement amount. Without legal help from a law firm with the resources to stand up to the trucking industry, you run the risk of accepting a settlement that does not meet all your medical and financial needs.
Extensive Experience Representing Truck Accident Survivors
We encourage you to read about some of our past significant personal injury cases, including cases involving truck accidents. We have experience with all types of trucking accident cases and we have represented clients with all types of injuries.
We have an in-house investigator who works with our lawyers on truck accident cases. In building a strong case on our clients' behalf, some of the questions we investigate include:
- Who is at fault? What does the evidence show about whom or what caused the truck accident ?
- Did the truck driver meet his or her legal responsibilities ?
- Was the accident caused by poor truck maintenance, driver fatigue, alcohol or drug use or defective truck equipment?
