Houston Truck Accident Attorney

Truck / 18-Wheeler AccidentsTruck accidents are a common occurrence in Houston with all the ports and manufacturing hubs both within the city and surrounding areas. A lot of goods and materials are moved through Houston by means of a large truck or 18-wheeler. Truck accidents often involve massive damage and severe injuries due to the nature and size of trucks. The risk of truck accidents is only heightened by the fact many truck drivers are required to drive long distances, spending multiple hours behind the wheel in a single trip. This puts many truck drivers at risk of falling asleep behind the wheel or becoming distracted due to fatigue. Another common factor that leads to truck accidents is inexperience. A poorly trained driver who does not possess the ability to properly operate and maneuver such a large vehicle only increases the chances of an accident.

If you or a loved one suffered injury following a truck or 18-wheeler accident, call Stanley Injury Law today to discuss your options.

Complexity Of Truck Accidents

A unique aspect to truck and 18-wheeler accidents is that often more than one party or entity is at fault. Drivers can be contracted by multiple companies and operate trucks which are leased and maintained by an entirely different company. The insurance providers for these different trucking companies will try to ensure they pay as little as possible for accident claims. Often it can be difficult to even retrieve insurance information on the appropriate trucking company. Normally it requires an extensive investigation and vast resources to determine the at-fault company and to ensure they are held liable for the damages caused.

Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents in Houston and throughout Texas often result in serious life changing injuries. Such injuries can range anywhere from herniations to catastrophic injuries. Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds creating an enormous amount of force when they travel. This makes it difficult for truck drivers to brake and stop quickly. If any negative weather conditions are present at the time, the ability to stop a commercial truck or 18-wheeler is limited even more. In Houston traffic can appear out of nowhere and the need to stop can become immediate. Some of the injuries most often experienced after a truck accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon tears
  • Loss of limbs
  • Catastrophic injuries

An often-overlooked injury that truck accident survivors suffer from is emotional and mental injuries. Truck and 18-wheeler accidents can be traumatic, life altering events that seem impossible for some survivors to remove from their memory. This can drastically alter one’s daily life, ability to perform tasks at work, and even maintain personal relationships. Involvement in a truck accident can cause an individual to suffer from such things as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and even sleep deprivation
