At Kirkendall Dwyer LLP, our attorneys have the resources and the determination to help you recover the compensation that you need and deserve.
Everything we use in our day-to-day lives moves, at some time, on a truck. Because of this there are a lot of trucks on the road. A lot of trucks mean a lot of accidents, with a lot of different causes. Think of the size and weight of a tractor with a full trailer. The driver of such a vehicle is going to encounter all the same hazards you do in your passenger car, but because of sheer enormousness of the rig, the driver will not be able to stop as quickly as you would. When you collide with an 18-wheeler, the consequences can be horrendous.
In case of an accident, you should note the particulars of the incident, and write them down. Don’t rely on your memory, which can become hazy over time. Also, shock can result in your memories being eroded. Your Houston 18 wheeler accident attorney will need these details in order to build your case, and ensure that the driver of the truck is held liable for any negligence on his part that may have caused your injuries.
