Texas Truck Accident Attorneys

An investigation to this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck put another driver’s life at risk. The driver of the semi-truck that caused the accident, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon the motorist.

The elements of liability, damages, and the ability to pay are critical in determining the value of a case or claim. Without all three elements, a case has little to no value given the nature of our legal system.
