18-wheeler Accidents

Trucking Accident Attorney in Houston

Representing Victims of 18-Wheeler Collisions

18-wheelers can reach up to 70 feet in length and weigh 80,000 pounds in some cases. The size and weight of these trucks can lead to catastrophic injuries if a collision occurs. This is why 18-wheeler trucks (also known as big rigs) are held to a high safety standard and governed by strict federal regulations.

If you or someone you love was injured in a truck accident, you should not hesitate to reach out to a Houston 18-wheeler accident lawyer at Correro & Leisure, P.C. While your insurance company may try to get you to settle for a small amount of compensation, we fight on behalf of our clients to obtain the maximum amount you deserve.

Injuries in 18-Wheeler Accidents

There are a number of serious injuries that can occur as a result of a collision with an 18-wheeler, due to its size, weight, and center of gravity. The most common injuries include broken bones, amputations, herniated disks, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, brain damage, bone fractures, and catastrophic injury. Any injuries which are permanent and life-altering are particularly relevant to the size of the settlement or verdict. We'll work closely with you to investigate the causes of your accident and to pursue compensation with the liable party's employer and/or insurance company.

Truck accidents can occur as a result of negligent driving, which may include:

  • The truck driver driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • The truck driver driving while fatigued due to overworking
  • Distracted driving, such as texting, using GPS, or the radio
  • Reckless driving and failing to adhere to traffic laws
