A Danger to You: 18-Wheelers, Semi-Trucks
Tens of thousands of freight truck operators drive the I-35 corridor and Texas highways every day and night. These 18-wheelers can weigh an incredible 80,000 pounds, over 16 times the weight of the average family vehicle. If a collision with a semi-truck can bring destruction and devastation to your steel-enforced vehicle, imagine what it can do to your body and life.
Though rules are in place to promote safe-driving practices, not all truckers abide by these safety rules. Professional truck drivers can suffer from severe exhaustion trying to meet unreasonable deadlines under pressure to earn their pay. One small mistake or overcorrection while operating such a massive vehicle can turn into a lifelong nightmare for you. There is no such thing as a “minor” semi-truck collision.
Barry Settles Truck Accident for $1.95 Million
Carl Barry negotiated a settlement on behalf of an Austin-area man for nearly $2 million. The man was repairing a traffic light in an elevated bucket. The driver of the 18-wheeler negligently attempted to go under the bucket but failed to clear it. The collision caused the man to plummet to the ground, where he sustained permanent injuries to his wrists, leaving him with limited mobility in both hands.
No one expects to be the victim of a truck accident. However, trucking companies very often expect to be the recipients of lawsuits brought against them for accidents caused by their vehicles and the drivers that operate them. Without sound legal attention from a professional with ample experience, your claim stands little chance of success. Brett Burlison
